Year Enacted: 2005
Description: The University of South Carolina was awarded a Facility Grant, NNL05AA22G in the amount of $1,973,287, to make structural improvements to the Thomas Cooper Library. The construction project will involve the addition of two wings, a Modern Political Collections (MPC) wing (featuring the Ernest F. Hollings Library) and a Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC) wing. NASA related exhibits and programs in the MPC wing will inspire and inform the one million plus annual visitors. It is also envisioned that this new facility will have the potential to entice students, including minorities and women, to pursue careers in aeronautical engineering, computer science and related areas. NASA funds will provide partial support for the $18M project with contributions from other government agencies and private funding sources. The project is expected to take about three years to complete..
