INTERLIBRARY LOAN …. IN THE FAST LANE

The College of Charleston Library is part of a consortium of 40+ academic libraries across the state that make borrowing quick and easy.  The consortium is called PASCAL (PARTNERSHIP AMONG SC ACADEMIC LIBRARIES) and the service is called PASCAL Delivers.  (We librarians are clever folks)

If  you don’t find the book in the College catalog, you might see the bright blue PASCAL Delivers logo.

Click on the logo and you’ll  see the other libraries in South Carolina that own the book when you go to  Display Holdings of PASCAL Libraries .   And if you click Request this item, you can quickly request the book and get it delivered to your office within three days.

It’s that simple – as many of your colleagues have already discovered.

Of course,  you may need books that are not owned by any South Carolina academic library.  In those cases,  fill out the standard Interlibrary Loan Request form  and our staff will borrow the book from beyond SC borders.  But  you’ll discover, PASCAL Delivers will make Interlibrary Loan even faster and easier than ever before.
