Special Collections will continue to provide enhanced virtual research services throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. 

The Special Collections Research Services Desk will be staffed online at http://answers.library.cofc.edu/speccoll/ Monday – Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm with a midday break between noon and 1:00. Staff are also available via telephone (843-953-8016) and email (specialcollections@cofc.edu). 

We welcome inquiries from all users, regardless of affiliation. Researchers can get in touch with Special Collections’ reference professionals using the Ask Us form on our website. College of Charleston students, faculty, and staff can schedule a research consultation with a faculty archivist here: http://libcal.library.cofc.edu/appointments.

Researchers can also explore collections via our Discovery Service, the Lowcountry Digital Library, or through various Research Guides.
