Databases can be thought of as electronic filing systems. Use the databases to search for and retrieve general articles in magazines and newspapers, or peer-reviewed articles in scholarly journals.


Use the Online Catalog to find books, newspapers, DVDs and other resources located in the library. Search by Title, Author, Subject or Keyword.

Electronic Books

The LRC has two collections of Ebooks: ebrary and  EBSCO’s eBooks. Electronic books are complete books viewed over the Internet, available 24/7/365. Supplement your research with these keyword searchable books.


Note: To access electronic books and databases off-campus, you will need the following information:

Username: 7-digit TCL ID number

Password: first initial of first name + last three digits of Social Security number

When a needed book, periodical article, or audio visual title is not available from the LRC, it can often be obtained from another library. Books can be ordered from another South Carolina Academic Library using PASCAL Delivers. PASCAL books arrive in about 5 days. Periodical articles  and some audio materials can be obtained in about two weeks through Interlibrary Loan. Charges for Interlibrary Loan service vary according to user status. Please plan ahead to take advantage of this service. Consult an LRC staff member, read our LibGuide: What to Do When You Can’t Find a Title, or call the LRC at 525-8304 or 470-6003 for assistance.
