Library Resources

The USC Upstate Library includes a late-night computer lab, subject-specific databases of articles, films, and more, and a 24/7 Ask a Librarian chat-based reference support.

Bookstore and Inclusive Access

The USC Upstate Bookstore is the place to look up your required textbooks and purchase or rent books, e-books, computer access codes, and other supplies and gear. USC Upstate also participates in Inclusive Access to deliver ebooks to students at a reduced cost, on or before the first day of class by adding your textbook rental fees directly to your tuition bill. You always have the choice to “opt out” of the service by the deadline posted–within the drop/add period in the first few days of a regular semester or the first day of a shorter term. If you are using Inclusive Access but you don’t see the content in your Blackboard course, reach out to your instructor or the Bookstore right away.

Technical Support

If you have problems with your computer, technology, IT-related questions, or need for technology or network support, please contact the Division of Information Technology Help Desk at 864.503.5257 or email The Help Desk in the lower level of the John D. Stockwell Administration Building is open Monday-Thursday from 8:00 AM-10:00 PM, 8-5 on Fridays, and 5-10 on Sundays.
