If a nearby academic library has a book we don't have available, you can use PASCAL's Visiting Patron service to check it out in person from the other institution. To do this, we recommend:
- You first verify the book is available at a participating PASCAL library and able to be loaned through PASCAL. If you aren't sure, check with a reference librarian or the circulation desk. These are the same titles that are available through PASCAL Delivers.
- Make sure your Upstate library account is in good standing and that your ID is working properly (you can also check this at circulation).
- Visit the library and borrow the book using your USC Upstate ID.
