Planning Your Visit

The Waring Historical Library is dedicated to preserving and providing access to primary source materials relating to the history of the health sciences in the Southeast and at the Medical University of South Carolina. To explore the Waring's collections, consult the online resources available on the Reference page, the Waring's growing list of archival and manuscript collection finding aids, and the library's experienced and knowledgeable staff.

Conducting Research

For a more detailed list of collections, please refer to our Reference and Conducting Research page. After identifying the materials you are interested in viewing during your research appointment at the Waring Historical Library, please submit a Reference Request form outlining your research topic, the collections you are interested in seeing, and if you need any additional assistance. From there, the staff will work with you to schedule a time for your research appointment.


Currently the Waring Historical Library is not conducting tours of the building as we are in the preparation stages for a renovation of our building. Contact the Waring's staff for more information.
