Web Interfaces to Library Catalogs

More than 50 South Carolina on-line library catalogs can now be accessed through the Internet. To use most of these catalogs you must telnet to a host computer and enter a username and password. But three state libraries now have Web interfaces for their catalogs:

The Citadel
College of Charleston
Francis Marion University

Try this new way of accessing on-line catalogs with your Web browser--you'll like it! At least three other South Carolina libraries have recently purchased Web interfaces for their catalogs and will be implementing this software within the next few months.

To see which South Carolina library catalogs can be searched through the Internet, visit SCIway Web's library section https://www.sciway.net/lib/. These pages include Web links and automated telnet logins. However, the telnet logins will work only if your browser has telnet plug-in software.

South Carolina Historical Society's Catalog is Unique

Most South Carolina on-line library catalogs help you find books, journals, magazines, and similar publications. But the South Carolina Historical Society's on-line manuscripts catalog includes only information about the historical documents in the Society's archives. In addition copious document descriptions often include related historical and biographical information that can't be found anywhere else. Exploring the Society's catalog is like reading an entrancing book about South Carolina's past.

You can access the South Carolina Historical Society's Web site and on-line catalog at http://schistory.org/ (a new address). Both of these resources were developed by Peter Wilkerson, the Society's archivist. Peter and the Society are also co-developers of the history section of SCIway Web (see https://www.sciway.net/hist/).
