If the library does not have a book you need, we have services available to help you get it.
PASCAL Delivers is a service which finds books in other SC libraries and sends them to Thomas Cooper for you to check out. Click here or use the link in the catalog to access this service.
Interlibrary Loan is a free service to students, faculty and staff. Request a book and ILL staff will find it at another library and have it sent to Thomas Cooper for you to check out.
