A service provided by PASCAL (Palmetto Association of South Carolina's Academic Libraries) to academic colleges and universities in the state. PASCALCAT is a union catalog of the library collections of the universities and colleges in South Carolina. Items can be searched, saved, and emailed to yourself. You can email the bibliographic information to the Thrift Library as an Interlibrary Loan request. You must also submit a form to the library with your name, email address, or home number.
PASCAL has also been the source the almost 20 free databases for our library. Unfortunately, a 90% budget cut will end most of this service at the end of this school year. Please check out the following links for information on the funding crisis.
