PASCAL Delivers is a service that allows Clemson students, faculty, and staff to borrow books from other South Carolina academic libraries. It is generally quicker than requesting books through ILL.
Making a Request
When your catalog search shows we don’t have the book you need, click the green PASCAL Delivers banner on the right-hand side of the page. We share items with many other libraries and this link automatically searches their collections. You can request any book that’s listed as available and it will be sent here for you to check out.
Or you can:
- Search the PASCAL Delivers catalog directly.
- Click the Request link and select Clemson as your institution.
- Enter your Clemson username and password and select the location where you would like to pick up the book.
How Long Does it Take?
Books will arrive within 2 to 5 days.
PASCAL books can be checked out for 6 weeks and are eligible a single renewal of 6 weeks. To renew your PASCAL book, log on to My Library Account or contact the Resource Sharing Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you find that you need the book beyond this 12-week period, please contact the Office of Resource Sharing and we will be happy to obtain another copy for you.
Late returns are subject to the Clemson Libraries circulation policy for late, damaged, or lost materials, located here.
PASCAL Visiting Patron Service
If you’re able to use PASCAL Delivers, you can also go in-person to visit another PASCAL Delivers library and check out the book yourself using the Visiting Patron service. Note that Visiting Patron checkouts have different limits from PASCAL Delivers patrons; in-person patrons are limited to three items and the checkout period for these items is three weeks with one additional three week renewal allowed. You will need to present a picture ID and know your institutional ID and the authentication code you use to request books using PASCAL Delivers.
PASCAL Pick Up Anywhere Service
If you do not live near Clemson University, Pick-Up Anywhere is for you! You can request an item via PASCAL Delivers and have it sent to the college or university closest to you. Use your Clemson ID to check the item out at that college’s library.
To use this service, request the book as you would a regular PASCAL Delivers item. After filling in your information, change the pickup location to the college or university where you want your book(s) delivered. When the book has arrived you’ll receive an email stating that it is ready for pick up.
