University Libraries - South Carolina Political Collections

Welcome to Thomas Cooper Library!

South Carolina Political Collections supports the study of contemporary government and society by collecting and making available archival materials and oral histories documenting South Carolina government and political activities at the local, state, and national levels, primarily since World War II, and by providing relevant programming for scholars, students, and the public.

Our collections include manuscripts, electronic records, and audiovisual materials documenting the activities of South Carolina’s leaders in Congress and the General Assembly, the state’s political parties, and other individuals and organizations playing substantive roles in politics and government.

PLEASE NOTE: All of our collections are closed to research until their arrangement and description have been completed.
