The A.J. Eastwood Library
The staff, collections, and equipment of the Eastwood Library are an integral part of Limestone’s instructional program, with a goal of educating students to be independent, lifelong learners. All freshmen receive instruction in the use of the library, and specialized instruction (both face-to-face and online) for other course work is offered to many classes. The library offers traditional and online research assistance and interlibrary loan services. As a member of several consortiums, the library is able to provide expanded services to its patrons including quick access to over 12 million titles within South Carolina. Library collections are housed in a building dedicated in 1966 and named in honor of a former President of the College, A. J. Eastwood. The library provides wireless internet access, 12 computer stations, and laptops (and iPads) that can be checked out for in-house use only. The library currently maintains access to over 980,000 physical and electronic resources (print books, e-books, e-videos) and provides access to over 460,900 full-text journals and 176 research databases. Library resources are available 24/7 through the library's website. The site includes links to the library’s online catalog, electronic book collections, research databases, research guides, library policies, tutorials, forms for library loan requests, and various ways to contact the library staff for help, including an online chat service with a librarian. Also accessible from the library website is the Limestone College Digital Collections (Shared Shelf) which houses our Student Works Collections (including video recordings of student presentations and student creative and research works), and the Student Research and Presentations Symposium information page which includes archives of past Student Symposium presentations.
