Library Information for SWU Online Students

This guide provides information about the library and its services for SWU Online students.

Options for Borrowing Materials

  • Rickman Library provides access to thousands of books, articles, and other resources online.  More information is available on the "Accessing Databases" tab. Students within driving distance of campus are welcome to visit the library in person and borrow physical materials.  SWU Online students have the same borrowing privileges as on-campus students.
  • SWU Online students in South Carolina may check out materials at any participating academic library in the state using their SWU ID card. Contact Brad Bowen to get an ID card.
  • SWU Online students in South Carolina may also request books through PASCAL Delivers and have them delivered to a participating academic library of their choice for pick-up.

Interlibrary Loan

Do you need an article that the library does not have access to via our databases?  Interlibrary loan service is available for journal articles.  At this time, we are not able to process requests for physical items (books, DVDs, etc.).
