The Visual Materials collections house a variety of materials that document the people, places, and culture of South Carolina.  There are three major areas:

  • Architectural Records
  • Artwork
  • Photographs and Postcards


Searching the Collections


Work is ongoing to describe materials in the University's online catalogue.  Most of the photographic materials are part of this catalogue, but records for the architectural records and a significant portion of the artwork are not yet available.  Finding aids for the larger collections are available.
