HIST 300 - Introduction to Historical Studies: Search catalog, Books, and E-books

Find Books and E-Books


Advanced Search

Find Books option provides one-stop searching for books and e-books, journal articles, DVDs, and more.  The search box in the widget above allows you to directly search for materials found in what was previously called the Library Catalog.


The video below provides a brief introduction on how to use the new Search to find books and e-books in the USC Upstate library collection.  

Requesting Books through PASCAL Delivers

This video tutorial explains the process of how to request a book from PASCAL Delivers once you have located it in the Search catalog.  Also located on this page, the box "Using the Request Link in the Search catalog" contains an image of the Search catalog for a quick visual reminder of requesting books that we hold in our own collection at USC Upstate.   

Using the Request Link in the Search catalog

Did you know that you can request books for check out even when you're not physically in the library?  When you find a book (or books) in the Search catalog that you would like, you can submit your request electronically and Circulation staff will pull the materials.  Once they have done so, you will receive an email alert directing you to select your time for pickup and check out at the circulation desk.  Please see the image below showing how to use the "Request" link in a sample catalog record.
