About the University libraries

The USC Library System provides information resources and services responsive to the curricular and research needs of the Carolinian community, supporting the goal-directed thrusts of the University. Professional and licensed librarians supervise a total of 15 libraries, five audio-visual centers, and central acquisition and cataloging units located in four (of five) campuses of the University.


News and announcements

The USC Library System collected books from librarians, elementary and high school students and faculty members in celebration of the National Library Information Month 2016. The turnover ceremony was held last January 24, 2017 at Barangay Tinago Reading Center, Cebu City.
