The South Carolina State Library and the South Carolina Digital Library present the South Carolina State Library Photograph Collection, a collection of historical and contemporary images from the 1940s-1970s relating to library services.
The photographs are from the archives of the South Carolina State Library and many were taken by State Library field agents. Portrayed in photographs are public library staff and patrons, exhibits and displays, library programs, and State Library Board staff and programs.
This collection makes available images from the archives of the South Carolina State Library, which is rich in images and documents about the public libraries of the state and the communities they serve. The metadata records follow the Dublin Core format. Scanning was done at the South Carolina State Library by Mir Parvin on a flatbed Epson Expression 10000XL Photo scanner, using Epson Scan software. Images were scanned as color TIFFs at 24-bit and 600 ppi, and high quality JPEGs were created from the TIFFs. John Quirk from the University of South Carolina Libraries uploaded the images and metadata into the content management system for the South Carolina Digital Library and created the banner for the collection.
