Guide to "Green" Archival Collections in SC
The Archives and Special Collections Round Table of the South Carolina Library Association (SCLA) has posted a "Guide to 'Green' Collections in the Palmetto State." The term “green” is defined in a broad context and includes topics ranging from public health to conservation to nuclear waste to gardening. Although this guide is meant to give librarians an idea of the variety of information resources available in South Carolina, anyone interested in "green" topics may find the guide of interest in locating primary source documents.

The Beaufort District Collection (311 Scott Street, Beaufort) holds historical files on the fight against German chemical producer BASF Group (then known as Badische Anilin and Sodafabrik; it wanted to locate a factory on Victoria Bluff), Port Royal Sound survey reports pertaining to estuaries and water supply, and a few public health dissertations on microfiche based on studies conducted in Beaufort County.
Come visit us to research these materials about green topics. Usual hours of operation are Mondays through Fridays, 10 am until 5 pm but with the holidays upon us, there are closings. You can call ahead to make an appointment or to ask questions about our materials or schedule: 843-470-6525.
Unfortunately, we are still hemmed in the 1st floor room so we cannot seat more than four researchers at a time.
