Find Books and E-Books using SearchUP
During the summer of 2020, USC Upstate Library installed a new search tool. SearchUp provides one-stop searching for books and e-books, journal articles, DVDs, and more. The search box in this widget allows you to directly search for materials found in what was previously called the Library Catalog.
The video below provides a brief introduction on how to use the new SearchUP to find books and e-books in the USC Upstate library collection.
Books availabe from other college libraries in SC
