Visitors to Special Collections and the SC Historical Society can log in to the College of Charleston guest network using their personal computers. We ask that you limit use of the two public computers in the reading room to searching the online catalog, finding aids, and sites related to your research. Reference staff are on hand to assist you with connecting, searching, and access to the internet and to library resources.
