1. Check Furman's catalog to see if we have the book available locally
Search Furman Library Catalog
2. Check PASCAL to see if the book is available through a partner library
3. If the book is not available locally, use ILLIAD to request the book from the broader community
Note: This will take longer than a PASCAL request.
PASCAL Service Overview
PASCAL (Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries) is the fastest way for Furman students, faculty and staff to borrow books.
PASCAL services include:
PASCAL Delivers - Courier service between Furman and other SC academic libraries Mondays through Fridays.
PASCAL Visiting Patron - When you don't have time to wait for the courier, take your Palacard to a nearby PASCAL library and checkout up to 3 books for 3 weeks, with a single renewal period of 3 more weeks. Books borrowed from other PASCAL libraries may be returned at the Furman library.
PASCAL PickUp Anywhere (PUA) - Pickup your books at any other PASCAL library.
