Name Changes

Following the campus wide directive, we recently changed the names of our campus locations. Campus name locations are changing from Historic Beaufort (or North) to USCB Beaufort and from Hilton Head Gateway (or South) to USCB Bluffton. Please note these changes when requesting materials to be sent and picked up from USCB Beaufort Library or USCB Bluffton Library.

New Whiteboards Installed

Based on your feedback, we installed whiteboards in each study room on the Bluffton Campus. Dry erase markers and erasers are available at the circulation desk. If you have any other suggestions or feedback on how to make the library better, please take our survey.

We now have print & online access to Journal of Faculty Development.  Print just started with v.31, no. 3, 2017 issue.  We have online access from v.18, 2001/2002 to present on hardwired computers & via the proxy.
