What is PASCAL?

PASCAL is the Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries. This organization includes a statewide library catalog and book delivery system.

  • If you need a book that's not here at Thomason Library, check the PASCAL catalog and if it's available from another PASCAL member library, you can request it.
  • PASCAL delivers books within 2-4 business days.
  • You will be notified via email when the book arrives, and it can be picked up at the Circulation Desk.

  • Please send an email to with as much information as possible about the item (a complete citation is preferable).

Item Pick-up

  • We will notify you by email when your ILL item has arrived, and you can pick up all items at the library Circulation Desk.

Cost / Fees

  • There is often no charge for the ILL service; however, some libraries may charge a fee before they will lend certain items.  We will pay the first $10 of any fee charged.
