SC School Directories Now Digitized

Columbia S.C. – The South Carolina State Library is pleased to present the South Carolina School Directory Digital Collection (

Since 1911 the South Carolina State Department of Education has published a yearly directory of schools in the state. Information catalogued in each issue is different; some issues include school and district information, Department of Education staff and programs, listings of private schools and colleges, statistics, and state educational associations. These directories provide valuable information about the school buildings and educational leaders in a community. The issues available are from 1912-2010.

The South Carolina State Library’s Digital Collection ( provides a set of online projects that expand the State Library’s mission to provide equal access to information for all South Carolinians.  These online collections create greater access to the State Library’s unique historical resources and new digital projects.

The South Carolina State Documents Depository is an online library of both current and historical publications written by state agencies and state-supported academic institutions.  These publications provide citizens with crucial information about state government, including statistics, annual accountability reports, and data on a wide variety of topics related to the state.
