USC Upstate community, meet your powerful new research assistant.
The USC Upstate Library is transitioning to a new combined library catalog and article searching tool in June 2020.
What does this mean for faculty and students?
- You will be able to search everything--books, journals, articles, and more--all from one single search box (advanced search filtering available).
- It will be easier to find the resources you need, including materials from academic libraries around the state.
- Our database A to Z list will still be a standalone search option.
Why are we doing this?
- Most importantly, this project is an opportunity to provide better service to you.
- The migration is a project of the Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries (PASCAL), and is supported by lottery funds.
- A single, shared system presents substantial cost-saving and unmatched opportunities for collaboration among PASCAL institutions.
- Greatly improved functionality for Library staff--the software we have been using has not been actively developed in more than a decade.
