Agency newsletters are one category of state publications collected by SC State Library. Historically, state agency newsletters came out in print format, but today they are typically sent by email. SCSL has made it a practice to subscribe to and receive state agency e-newsletters. We have a process for converting them into PDFs, and we then add these items to our catalog for digital items. One such agency newsletter comes from the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium, the state agency established in 1978 to manage the NOAA National Sea Grant College Program for South Carolina. The SC Sea Grant Consortium’s newsletter, The Lettered Olive: S.C. Sea Grant Consortium Education News, has an interesting name and clean style, making it our featured publication for October 2023. By the way, the lettered olive is a species of large predatory sea snail and is the official SC state shell.
The complete list of new electronic South Carolina state documents is available. The South Carolina Digital State Documents Depository provides access to SC state agency publications. These publications provide citizens with crucial information about state government, including statistics, reports, and data on a wide variety of topics related to the state.
