Due to flooding in our office, the Interlibrary Loan department is currently closed. We will respond to emails and process requests as quickly as possible once we have re-opened. We appreciate your patience during this time.
ILL has simplified item pick-ups!
Instead of designating separate authorized users in your ILL acount, faculty members can now utilize the existing circulation proxy card system for ILL items. To allow graduate assistants to check out items to your account, request a proxy card for that student. The form can be obtained at the Circulation Department by email request or by completing the online form. Proxy cards are issued for one semester. The card will be processed within 2 working days and will be mailed to you. You assume full responsibility for all items checked out on the proxy card.
University of South Carolina Columbia faculty members, currently-enrolled students, staff, current members of the Thomas Cooper Society, and current members of the Carolina Alumni Association are eligible to use Interlibrary Loan.
Persons affiliated with the School of Medicine, the Law School, or the University's Regional and Four-Year campuses should use their respective Interlibrary Loan departments. All others are encouraged to inquire at their local public libraries about interlibrary loan privileges.
We are located on level four of Thomas Cooper Library.
