We can now access EBSCO’s Academic Collection of over 125,000 e-books from major publishers and university presses thanks to an initiative of PASCAL (Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries). There is some overlap with the ebrary collection PASCAL has already licensed, but the majority of the titles are unique.
Eventually there will be records in the catalog for each title, but for now you can access the collection from the Articles and Databases link. Find it alphabetically under E, in the General Purpose subject, and from the Books and Electronic Books types.
Kanopy, a streaming video service, has been added to the Audio & Visual type. The videos cover a wide range of topics. You can create a playlist, embed content, and view transcripts.

Thanks to an initiative by PASCAL, academic libraries in the state now have access to 100,000+ books from ebrary. This collection contains books from major publishers and university presses representing a wide range of disciplines. While most of the collection is academic, you will find some of the Dummies books and other reading. Soon each book will be linked from the library catalog as well.
The PASCAL ebrary Collection is linked from the General Purpose Databases category and the Books type from the Articles and Databases page.
Printing and downloading from most of these books is limited to a maximum of “up to 60 pages” per book per user session. A few publishers have set more restrictive limits. For more information, see the ebrary Support Center website.
ebrary content can be downloaded using the free Adobe Digital Editions software to most devices including the Nook, iPad, iPhone, etc., but not the Kindle or Kobo Vox. For instructions go to: support.ebrary.com/category/english/download.
