What is “PASCAL Delivers”?

“PASCAL Delivers” is a rapid book delivery service for the patrons of all PASCAL member institutions, which includes the College of Charleston, Addlestone Library. PASCAL Delivers begins with a single, web-based, unified catalog of library holdings. Library users search the PASCAL Catalog, locate books in any member-library, submit an electronic request for delivery of a book to their home institution, and receive those books within a few days. Pascal Delivers is part of the State-wide Electronic Academic Library.

What is PASCAL?

The Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries (PASCAL) is consortium of academic libraries in South Carolina. Pascal is a strategic initiative launched by South Carolina’s public and private academic libraries in conjunction with their parent institutions: the Commission on Higher Education (CHE), the SC Independent Colleges & Universities (SCICU), the Office of State Chief Information Officer, the State Library, and the Department of Archives and History. Pascal was created to respond to the information-access needs of South Carolinians. Visit us on the web at: http://pascalsc.org.
