****Important Parking Information***
The 2011 SCAA fall conference will be held Thursday, October 6, in the Ernest F. Hollings Special Collections Library at USC. The Hollings Library is accessed through the main floor of the Thomas Cooper Library.
Hourly parking for the conference will be available at the Bull Street Parking Garage, adjacent to the libraries. Take Blossom Street east, turn left onto Bull Street, and turn left again onto Devine Street and enter Gate 3. This is the second gate on Devine Street—the first gate you will come to is a staff only exit. Visitor parking is on the upper levels of the garage (follow signs).
Please take your ticket with you when leaving your car. When returning to the garage at the end of the day, BEFORE retrieving your car, you must present the ticket and pay at the walk-up Pay Station, which is located on the corner of the parking structure nearest the library. Fees are $1 per hour and it is CASH ONLY for non-USC students/employees. There is usually plenty of visitor parking in the mornings, but it gets crowded as students come in, so you may want to plan to arrive by 9:30.
If all visitor parking in the Bull Street Garage is filled, there should be additional visitor parking in the Horizon Garage,between Main and Assembly streets on Wheat Street. It is also $1 per hour but is capped at a maximum of $3 per day. It is about a 4-block walk to Thomas Cooper’s front door.
Handicapped parking is available in the Thomas Cooper loading dock area. Parking meters are also available on surrounding streets. Carpooling is encouraged where possible!
