Yes. There are three ways to get books that the library doesn't have in its print collection.
- eBook collection
- PASCAL Delivers
- Interlibrary Loan
Depending on what type of resource you need, you can access scholarly works, popular works, and reference books through HGTC's eBook collections. To begin, go to the Library Home Page and click on the eReading tab. Ebrary and the Ebsco eBook collection are great resources for scholarly eBooks about a variety of topics. Through Axis360, you can check out an eBook on your mobile device for up to 21 days. Credo Reference and GVRL are collections of reference eBooks. Learning Express Library is more than just an eBook collection, but it does include several hundred eBooks on careers, job skills, study skills and test-taking skills.
PASCAL Delivers allows current HGTC employees and students to request books from other South Carolina colleges and universities. Search the PASCAL catalog, or locate the PASCAL Delivers link below the catalog on the Library Home Page. You will need your H number to order books through PASCAL Delivers.
In order to meet specific research needs of students, faculty, and staff, the library offers an Interlibrary Loan service. Through this service, HGTC Library patrons may borrow materials from other libraries throughout the country. You can request an Interlibrary Loan with this form, or by speaking with a library staff member.
