Printed Materials and Vertical Files

Printed Materials and Vertical Files

Printed Materials: Our collection of printed materials includes books, rare books, pamphlets, and serials relating to all aspects of South Carolina and its history. This collection is largely designed to support our manuscript collection, but we do have substantial holdings related to genealogy, the Civil War, and local/state/regional history. To browse or search our holdings, simply visit our online catalog.

Vertical Files: The vertical file collection is comprised of newspaper clippings, photocopies of photographs owned by the Society, researchers’ notes, and other miscellaneous information. The collection is divided into numerous subjects and a printed guide is available online (below) as well as in our reading room. Subjects include architecture, African Americans history, churches, localities, and more.
