Top Resources

Great one-stop-shop for current event topics because they include a variety of information types.

Includes essays, news, scholarly articles, popular articles, reference sources, and more.

Reference Sources

Reference sources are a great place to start your research because they can give you an accurate but concise overview of your topic.

Starting with a reference source will save you time later in your research. 


Because it takes books a while to get written & published, we will have limited numbers of books on very-recent events. 

  • Library Catalog
  • PASCAL Delivers
    Catalog of other SC libraries. Request a book, and you will get an email when it is ready to be picked up here within 3-5 business days.


   Looking for an article or book that we don't have in the library?

   Place an InterLibrary Loan (ILL) request.


Newspaper articles are a great place to read about current events /  topics.
