In 2005 the State Library began harvesting agency publications that had been published in electronic format. In 2011 we began making both "born digital" and historical publications accessible through our online State Documents Document Depository.
Now citizens of South Carolina, state employees, researchers, and students from across the globe will be able to discover and explore unique and important South Carolina publications.
These documents are also searchable through SCLENDS, the library catalog for the State Library and a consortium of libraries around the state that has agreed to share resources and circulating materials.
Online State Documents Depository
Here are some highlights of collections and documents that are now available online!
