PASCAL Programs & Initiatives

PASCAL leverages state funds, membership dues and grants to provide cost-efficient services to its member academic libraries.

Key programs include:

  • PASCAL Delivers, a statewide rapid print-delivery service and union catalog that provides access to over 12 million print volumes housed in academic libraries around the state.
  • Core electronic resources, including thousands of academic journals covering all disciplines and over 290,000 academic e-books. PASCAL also offers its members opt-in electronic resources from over a dozen vendors in the academic marketplace.
  • Shared Library Services Platform for 53 institutions. PASCAL provides support and systems administration for a shared library management system and discovery interface.
  • South Carolina Affordable Learning (SCALE), a statewide initiative that supports members' efforts to reduce student costs through the use of quality low-cost and no-cost learning materials.

In addition to our key programs, PASCAL seeks to foster collaboration and enhance efficiencies within the SC academic library community through additional projects and initiatives.
