State library puts new photo collections online

The South Carolina State Library wants the public to know there are two new digital collections they can browse online.

One contains 40 historical and contemporary images from the 1940s to the 2000s relating to library services for children. Taken by South Carolina State Library field agents, the photographs portray youth at public libraries, summer reading programs, other children's programs, and displays. The other is a 25-image collection documenting the construction of the South Carolina State Library building at 1500 Senate Street in Columbia.

The State Library building was dedicated on Feb. 18, 1970.

Kim Henderson, University of South Carolina Bachelor of Science Information Science intern, scanned the photographs and created the metadata for each item as part of her spring internship with the State Library.

Both collections may be viewed online at statelibrary.sc.gov.

For more information, contact Amanda Stone, Innovation and Digital Librarian, at 803-734-4816 or astone@statelibrary.sc.gov.
