What is PASCAL Delivers?

PASCAL Delivers is a rapid book-delivery service provided by PASCAL (Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Library) which enables students, faculty and staff across the state to request and receive books from academic libraries in South Carolina. Over 12 million items are available in the catalog and books usually arrive within a few days!

If you’re able to use PASCAL Delivers, you can also go in-person to visit another PASCAL Delivers library and check out the book yourself using the Visiting Patron service. Note that Visiting Patron checkouts have different limits from PASCAL Delivers patrons; in-person patrons are limited to three items and the checkout period for these items is three weeks with one additional three week renewal allowed. You will need to present a picture ID and know your institutional ID and the authentication code you use to request books using PASCAL Delivers. 

And now, full text access from anywhere to over 250,000 eBooks is also available right from the PASCAL Delivers catalog!  You are able to request up to 50 items!
