Renewals 101: Renewals of items borrowed through traditional Interlibrary Loan are at the discretion of the lending library, which is why patrons must contact us to request renewals. All books borrowed through PASCAL Delivers are eligible for a one-time renewal of 6 weeks; just visit My Library Account and renew the selected book.
High-Density Storage 101: How do we find material in high-density storage if it’s shelved by size and not call number? Barcodes!
Proxy Requesting for ILL and PASCAL 101: Although the ILLiad and PASCAL Delivers systems are not designed for proxy requesting, we have developed workarounds to enable this service for our faculty. Learn more here.
