South College provides an easily accessible library and quality academic services to meet the research needs of its students, faculty, and staff. The library at each campus is open to accommodate the needs of day and evenings students. Specific hours are posted at each library location.
The library’s collection includes general and reference books (both print and electronic), print and online periodicals, multi-media software, online services, and other print media. An online catalog is available on the library’s web page. Through membership in TENN-SHARE and Lyrasis, the library is able to expand access to resources outside of its own facilities through intercollegiate borrowing. Participation in Tennessee Electronic Library gives the South College community additional access to a selection of multidisciplinary full text databases from the Gale collection, plus other resources. Internet access allows library users the opportunity to locate and retrieve information from libraries, colleges, database services, and various other institutions throughout the world. The library also offers a strong collection of non-print media to assist library users with their research and studies.
Library orientations are given each quarter to students enrolled in introductory courses. These orientations are designed to inform students of the types of resources available and to provide instruction as to how to use library resources to the greatest advantage.
