At all campus locations of Horry-Georgetown Technical College, traditional library services are blended with academic computing resources to provide centralized support centers where students can read, study, conduct research, and complete assignments. Each campus has a full-service library providing study areas, private study rooms, computers with wireless internet access, and video viewing facilities. The three campus library collections include resources and equipment selected to support the academic and personal needs of students, faculty, staff and members of the community.
The library is the gateway to library resources and services making them accessible on or off campus. Through the home page, access is provided to the library catalog, eBooks, research databases, online tutorials, library guides, and digital magazines. HGTC Library participates in multiple partnership agreements which increase the amount of resources available to patrons. The general library collection is available for check out with an HGTC student ID card. Materials may be requested from any campus and items are delivered to the campus most convenient, free of charge. Reference services are provided in person at each campus, via email, texting, chat, and social media websites or by telephone.
