Distance Learners and Distributed Education: Library Services for Students

Library Services for Students

As a student taking online or hybrid courses or attending classes at University Center in Greenville, you still have full access to most library resources and services--even print books from our collection! Read on to find out more!

Books and Media

Upstate has a new library system that replaces the old catalog. Use SearchUp to search for books, articles, media and more! You can also limit to certain materials. Watch a short video introduction to SearchUp!

Tip: log in to SearchUp with your Upstate username and password to get additional results from databases that require a separate log in and to be able to make requests for library materials and PASCAL Delivers.

PASCAL Delivers logo

PASCAL (Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries) is a state-wide consortium of more than 50 academic libraries in the state. In addition to providing some of our databases and ebooks, PASCAL has two important services that allow you to borrow print books from other academic libraries (both of these services require the use of your Carolina Card), a rapid book delivery service, and the Visiting Patron service.

Visiting Patron - If you are in "good standing" with the Upstate Library (i.e., no unpaid fees) and have a Carolina Card, you may go in person to visit another PASCAL member library and check out books. This service is limited to three items with a loan period of three weeks with one three-week renewal.
