Welcome to our "From Your Libraries..." newsletter! We've had lots of recent changes at the Springs Business Library, including a new Interim Head of the library, Kathy Snediker, and a new Business Librarian, Emily Doyle. Also, Dwight Gardner retired last month and will be greatly missed.
And in very exciting news, we will have a brand new subscription to Factiva starting in November! There have been numerous requests for this resource, and we're very pleased to be able to provide access to the entire campus. Another new online resource, PrivCo, is highlighted below. If you would like more information about our new (or older) resources, just let us know!
Enjoy the fall weather, and go Gamecocks!

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.
