New Rule for Interlibrary Loan / PASCAL Delivers

In order to support our growing graduate programs, the limit on interlibrary loans per semester for students has been raised from 20 to 25. Waivers may be granted by special permission.


Use Interlibrary Loan to borrow books and articles from other libraries.

Use PASCAL Delivers to find and borrow 12 million books from South Carolina's college libraries.

Congratulations! You Have Saved Your Students One Million Dollars

Over the past three years the Thrift Library eTextbook Project has saved our students over a million dollars with free eTextbooks.

You did this by selecting titles available for purchase to libraries for unlimited users. This semester that equaled 177 unique titles (about one in four) for a cost savings of $227,818 based on 20 students per class.

Wouldn't it be great to save them even more!

Contact you library liaison and we will work with you to find a good substitute for your current textbook.
