We've had lots of changes at the University Libraries since last semester, including the addition of quite a few new online resources. Also, I'm currently located at the Business Library, but I'm still available to help with any of your library needs so please don't hesitate to contact me.
In this issue of "From Your Libraries..." we're highlighting our online guide for Faculty, so take a look and see what we can do to support your research and teaching.
Enjoy the fall weather, and go Gamecocks!
| Slavery, Abolition & Social Justice
Acquired over the summer, this database brings together primary sources from 1490-2007 documenting key aspects of the history of slavery worldwide. In addition to the primary source documents there is a wealth of useful secondary sources for research and teaching; including an interactive map, scholarly essays, tutorials, a visual sources gallery, chronology and bibliography.

Now there's an easier way to request items from the Library Annex
Have you noticed a location that says "Columbia Annex" in the online catalog? Don't let that stop you from requesting those items. The Library Annex provides a solution to the overcrowding at our libraries through the use of high-density storage. All the items stored at the Annex can be easily requested online through the catalog. Items can be delivered to Thomas Cooper Library for checkout or, if the requested item is an article, can be scanned and delivered directly to your desktop.
