The South Carolina State Library Digital Collection provides documents and information that expand the State Library’s mission to provide equal access for all South Carolinians. These online collections create greater access to the State Library’s unique historical resources, government documents, and new digital projects.

Our ever growing digital collections contain a wealth of state and federal agency documents, digitized historical items published about South Carolina from the State Library print collection, and collaborations with public libraries, museums, and public institutions across the state to showcase South Carolina specific digital projects.

We also partner with the South Carolina Digital Library to provide free access to an even larger collection of South Carolina historical materials from over 40 cultural heritage institutions across the state.

The South Carolina State Library strives for a high standard of accessibility for its patrons. Efforts are ongoing to make our digital collections more accessible. If you require reasonable accommodations, encountered an item that requires accessible adjustments, or if you have any questions regarding accessibility and collections, please send an e-mail to DigitalCollections@StateLibrary.SC.Gov and a staff member will get back to you as soon as possible.

    Get ready for the food safety transfer : changes coming July 1, 2024
    (South Carolina State Library, 2023-10) South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control
    The South Carolina General Assembly passed a law in May 2023 that splits up the Department of Health and Environmental Control. As part of that change, the South Carolina Department of Agriculture is taking over DHEC’s food safety programs effective July 1, 2024. This transfer is a natural fit. SCDA has regulated wholesale food manufacturing for nearly 50 years. We also regulate animal feed safety and produce farming and perform a variety of specialized laboratory functions. We have a great reputation for protecting the public and working with businesses to educate before and while we regulate. SCDA and DHEC are working together to assure a smooth transition. Until July 1, 2024, DHEC will continue operating its food safety programs.
