For 30 years the "friends" have helped the College's library with resources and services through good and difficult times. By providing extraordinary support to the library for many years we have benefited all segments of the College community including faculty, staff, students and alumni. One example that will be of particular interest to alumni is the newly digitized college yearbooks and student newspapers, Springhillian, that will enable alumni, and others doing institutional research, to search on-line through all past issues - libguides.shc.edu/
Now we need your help to continue this effort. The library's needs have never been greater. If you are not currently a member of the "Friends", please consider joining us - libguides.shc/
