The South Carolina State Library Digital Collections is a set of online projects that expand the State Library's mission to provide equal access to information for all South Carolinians. These online collections create greater access to the State Library's unique historical resources and new digital projects.

Within the Digital Collections are several distinct projects. The State Library is collaborating with public libraries across the state to increase access to local holdings. The South Carolina State Documents Depository is an online library of both current and historical state documents. The South Carolina Tombstone Project is a collaboration between the State Library and partner public libraries in the state to provide images and transcriptions of tombstones in local cemeteries.

The State Library also partners with the South Carolina Digital Library to provide access to historical photographs of library service throughout the state, including bookmobiles, WPA library project, and children’s library service.
