How Long Does It Take?

Electronic material, such as journal articles, takes 2 to 3 days to arrive.

Books and other material that must be mailed take 1 to 2 weeks. Always check the PASCAL Catalog first to see if the book is available at another South Carolina institution as books will arrive within 2-5 days.

Due Dates and Renewals

The library that lends us the item sets the due date. If you need to renew the item, please let us know before the due date on the band. Renewals are at the discretion of the lending library and are not guaranteed.
