New Digital Collection – History of the USC School of Medicine


The School of Medicine Library announces our third digital collection, the History of the USC School of Medicine Columbia. This collection includes early photographs of faculty, staff and students, all commencement programs through 2014, a scrapbook of press cuttings, and documents which relate to the founding of the School of Medicine.

With funding from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Southeastern/Atlantic Region, Christine Whitaker, PI, and Felicia Yeh, Co-PI, from the School of Medicine Library collaborated with Ashley Knox, Co-PI of the University Libraries Digital Collections Department in the production of this collection. Carol Smith, retired School of Medicine Public Information Director, provided invaluable help in identifying people, places and things in the collection.

The School of Medicine Library’s Digital Collections are part of the South Carolina Digital Library initiative which provides free access to historic materials, such as photographs, manuscripts, journals, books, oral histories, objects, etc. illustrating the history and culture of South Carolina from over 40 cultural heritage institutions across the state.

New Look For Library Catalog Starting January 2015

The SOM Library is pleased to announce a change in our online Catalog. Beginning in January 2015, you’ll notice some changes when you click on the Library Catalog link on the Library’s web site. The new catalog works very much the same as the old. They both run on the same platform, Millennium by Innovative Interfaces, Inc. So you see no loss of functionality. In fact, you’ll quickly notice some new features such as:

  • Book covers and a newer, cleaner design.
  • You can now quickly broaden your catalog search from the SOM library to other USC campuses, including ALL Campuses. Furthermore, intra-campus lending (USC campuses) is greatly facilitated by this new arrangement. You can request titles directly, without going to PASCAL Delivers.
  • The inclusion of over a 250,000 statewide e-book titles from ebrary and the EBSCO Academic Ebook collection. These will now appear in your search results, greatly expanding the Library's holdings.
  • Please Note, you’ll now need to use your USC Network Username (the same used for Blackboard) or your University ID barcode number to access your patron record. In your patron record, you can manage holds, renew checkouts, see charges, and other functions.

Again, this is a fairly innocuous change at present, but it will allow us to more fully participate in USC system-wide resources in the future. More to come on that… (1/5/2015)
