What is Pascal Delivers?

Pascal Delivers provides Increased Access

Strategic Goal 1: Enhance, preserve, and provide universal access to print and electronic information resources to member libraries.

No one library is able to house all of the material that users need. To help remedy this, our consortium agrees to share collections and supply materials to each other on demand. Though each library has full control over the requestability and requestable format of items in their collection, a mix of print and digital items are available to users at all times.

Because of this agreement:

  • Users have access to materials in collections outside of that housed at their home institution, free of charge
  • In addition to lendable print material, users have access to digital versions of items that may otherwise be restricted to library-use-only or unavailable for purchase as an e-book
  • Access to material is not lost in the event of an unexpected disruption to an institution’s academic calendar, such as a natural disaster or COVID-19 resurgence. (Pascal, 2022)

How it works

A free rapid delivery service for books and digitized copies of articles and chapters!

  1. Search the library catalog for your resource
  2. if your library does not have access to the item you need click the ‘Request via PASCAL Delivers’ button
  3. Select your preferred pick up location
  4. Items arrive within a few days and check out for 6-weeks with a  6-week renewal
  5. You will receive an email when your item has arrived and you can come pick it up!

You can also request some digitized options from other institutions. Certain restrictions apply.

 

 

Things to know:

  • You need to know your student/faculty/staff ID number to check out materials from other institutions
  • Please be sure to pay close attention to your due dates
  • When you are done with your item you can bring it to the CircIT desk in Edens Library
  • You can use your library account to request renewals!

Policies and Perks

 

Pick Up Anywhere

Patrons may choose a location at which to pick up their requests. This pickup location may be neither the patron’s home institution nor the item’s owning institution. Patrons will find a list of eligible pickup location options on the Resource Sharing Request Form in Primo.

 

Visiting Patrons

Patrons may visit any participating PASCAL library in person to browse and checkout items. Only items that are available for request via PASCAL Delivers Print are available for checkout to Visiting Patrons. When planning to visit a participating PASCAL library, be sure to check that library’s hours of operation.

 

Return Anywhere

Patrons may return their PASCAL Delivers Print requests to any participating PASCAL library.
