Interlibrary Loan has limited ability to lend e-books. If you submit a request for an item in e-book format, we may obtain a physical copy of the item for you if we are unable to fill it in an electronic format.
We do not accept orders for textbooks and other classroom materials that are available at the USC bookstore for currently-offered courses.
Please check out Thomas Cooper Library's Textbook Reserve for information on textbooks available for two hour check-out within the library building.
Materials that may be difficult to obtain through interlibrary loan include:
Please note that there is no interlibrary loan service between Thomas Cooper Library and Richland Library. If you are a Richland County resident, or if you are a student living on campus with a valid student ID card, you have borrowing privileges at Richland Library.
If a requested item is found to be available at a local library, the Interlibrary Loan Department may refer a patron to that library.
Contact the Interlibrary Loan Department staff at (803) 777-2805 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about what materials are or are not available through interlibrary loan. Office hours are 8:30-5:00, Monday through Friday.
