The Discus user name and password changed on August 1, 2020 for the new school year. If you are a resident of South Carolina and need the new login, please contact your school media specialist, school district, local public library, or academic library with which you are affiliated. SC residents may also request the Discus login from the Discus Office Help Desk. Discus is a service provided by the South Carolina State Library and is strictly for the use of South Carolina residents. 

If your public library website requires a separate form of authentication, such as a library card number, to access databases provided by Discus, continue to use that method for access. Due to licensing agreements with our database providers, the login cannot be posted publicly to open websites or to open listservs.
