In 2008, MUSC Library and Waring Historical Library joined as a partner in the Low Country Digital Library, a project at the College of Charleston and part of the larger South Carolina Digital Library. Statewide partners include Clemson, USC, College of Charleston, and dozens of smaller South Carolina institutions. MEDICA is powered by ContentDM, a content management system robust enough to accept and display a huge variety of file formats, including video, audio, PowerPoint, and more. MEDICA staff work in concert to recruit new scholarship for the IR and to digitize historical materials from the Waring Historical Library.
