ILL

At the College of Charleston, interlibrary loan includes traditional interlibrary loan and PASCAL. Our main goal is to help you get the materials you need for research and study which we do not currently have at Addlestone Library. Our secondary goals include, but are not limited to, providing excellent customer service and, when necessary, bibliographic instruction.
