Enter the Interlibrary Loan ILLiad system and click the "ELECTRONICALLY DELIVERED ARTICLE" button.
Note: Pascal article delivery is restricted to CU faculty, staff, and students.
Fill out the Online Request Form. You will be contacted by staff from the Access Services Department. ERIC documents may only be checked out for use within Norlin Library.
Materials housed at the PASCAL storage facility display with that location in the Chinook catalog. Example:
You may place a request in one of three ways:
1. Once you have found a PASCAL item in the Chinook catalog, click the REQUEST IT! button at the top of the page. If there is only one volume you will be asked for your IdentiKey and password (or name, ID, and PIN code).
If there is more than one volume, you will be asked to authenticate, then a screen listing the multiple volumes will appear. Select the radio button for the volume desired. Unfortunately only one volume may be requested at a time. However, if you are logged into My Chinook you do not have to reauthenticate for each request. Multiple volumes may also be requested by contacting Circulation staff at 492-7477 or email@example.com.
If you are successful in placing the hold a confirmation message will appear.
If you are unsuccessful, you will be asked to contact a librarian and should try one of the following two request methods:
2. Email the Access Services Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and ID number, and call number information (including specific volume information, if applicable) for the item you want to request.
3. Call the Access Services Department at 303-492-7477 and place your request over the phone.
Requests from PASCAL are usually delivered the next business day, and come to the main library circulation desk at Norlin. You should receive an email advising you that the material has arrived. You can also check to see if you have any items on the "hold shelf" by checking your own library account (My Chinook). PASCAL requests are kept on our hold shelf for 10 days. If the material hasn't been picked up in ten days, it is returned to the storage facility.
Materials from PASCAL generally follow the same checkout rules as materials housed in libraries on campus. If you can check out a book from Norlin for 28 days, a PASCAL book will also check out to you for 28 days. Bound journals circulate for 7 days to most patrons.
Special Collections materials in PASCAL are requestable through the Chinook catalog, as described above. However, these materials may only be used in the Special Collections department under staff supervision. You will be contacted by staff from Special Collections to make an appointment.
Microfiche housed at PASCAL may be requested directly in Chinook, the online catalog. When you find an item you would like to order, simply click the REQUEST IT! Button and the fiche will be delivered to the main Circulation desk in Norlin the next business day. You should receive an email letting you know that the fiche has arrived.
Example record: http://libraries.colorado.edu/record=b3651508
If there is no REQUEST IT! button, look for a link to a Microfiche Request From displayed in the record.
Example record: http://libraries.colorado.edu/record=b1055687
Again, the fiche will be delivered to the main Circulation desk in Norlin the next Business day. You should receive an email letting you know that > the fiche has arrived.
Please contact the Head of Access Services, or the Manager for Circulation and Media Services, at 303-492-7477 to make arrangements for any special PASCAL access needs you may have.

If you would like to visit the University of Colorado’s off-site storage facility at PASCAL, please call the PASCAL Manager at 303-724-1114 or 1115 to schedule a time. There is a reading room available at PASCAL and materials may be checked out directly from PASCAL, if you have your UCB identification card. Please note, however, that materials stored at PASCAL cannot be browsed as they are stored by size, not subject classification.
