Graduate Student Guide to USC Libraries: Library Spaces

Libraries and Department Hours

Thomas Cooper Library is 24/7 during fall and spring semesters.  But you'll need to have your CarolinaCard with you to remain or enter the library during late night and early morning hours.

24 Hour & Long Term Lockers

Don't want to lug all your stuff while you take a break? Lockers are available on the Main Level and on Level Three of the Thomas Cooper Library.  Store your belongings in a secure place if you need to temporarily leave the library.  Check out a key from the Circulation Desk with your CarolinaCard.

Graduate students can check out the lockers on Level Three for up to six weeks.

Book Drops

No need to carry all your books back to Thomas Cooper Library. Books may be returned to ANY of the following libraries or book drops around campus:

Music Library (2nd and 3rd levels of the USC School of Music)

Thomas Cooper Library

Gambrell Hall (Book drop is in the lobby, look for the big blue box)
