The South Carolina Digital State Documents Depository provides access to publications produced 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. The new August and September South Carolina State Documents publication provides a description, author, and link to the full-text for each new agency document.
This month, we have many new publications about public health and the environment from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. There are several handouts about common vaccines.
We're also highlighting the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, Division of Tobacco Prevention and Control’s guide to Creating 100 Percent Tobacco-Free Schools in South Carolina. This guide for school administrators to create and implement tobacco-free school policies. Sections include: Model Policies, Sample Timeline, Sample Implementation Checklists, Communications Strategies, Enforcement Strategies, Support for Access to Cessation Services and Tobacco Use Prevention Education.
The State Library is working toward adding back issues of state documents to the depository, both born-digital and historical documents that we have scanned in-house:
- South Carolina Air National Guard Documents
- South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control - Vital Records Statistics
- South Carolina Emergency Management Division Documents
- South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division – Crime in SC
