General Information


Library Mission Statement:

The USC Sumter Anderson Library serves all segments of the campus community - students, faculty, staff, almni, and often the general public. The library endeavors to be responsive to students and their instructional needs, to faculty and their teaching and research requirements, and to administrative personnel and their informational needs. Further, the library serves as a bridge between the known and the unknown. It is the repository of, and connection to, all that humankind knows or attempts to discover. The ultimate goal is to collect and promote the use of the known in service of the creation of new knowledge by fostering learning, supporting teaching, and stimulating scholarship. It has as its ultimate purpose the stimulation of the use of its resources to encourage thinking and promote still further use of information in the future. The library shares with the faculty the responsibility to create educated persons, who, while they cannot know everything, should be able to locate what they need to know to continue their education for a lifetime.
