Borrowing Privileges

Borrowing privileges must be exercised in person. Books, sheet music, records, and CDs may be borrowed for a period of six weeks using your FC student ID card. Prompt return of materials will allow for maximum usage by all borrowers. Materials checked out are subject to recall immediately if needed for reserve or classroom purposes.

Students may borrow up to 20 items at a time.
Periodicals may not be checked out.
Videos and DVDs must be used in the library. There is a TV/VCR available for viewing videos and a stereo system for tapes, records and CDs. Headphones may be checked out at the circulation desk for use with the stereo system.


Fines on overdue items are $.25 per day, per item. Fines on overdue reserve and hourly items are $.10 per hour, per item. The maximum fine per item is $10.00, with the exception of hourly check-outs which have a maximum fine of $25.00. As an incentive for paying fines in a timely manner, the library offers a 50% discount on fines paid at the time of returning item(s). The discount does not apply during the week of final exams.

Renewing Borrowed Items

Items may be renewed for an additional six weeks if no hold has been placed on the item. Items may be renewed in one of four ways:

  1. The item(s) may be brought to the circulation desk and renewed. (Overdue items can only be renewed in person.)
  2. Renewal requests may be made over the phone by calling the library at 813.988.5131 x210. Please have the items you wish to renew with you when you make the call.
  3. Email your renewal request to library@floridacollege.edu. Please include the barcode number for each item you want to renew.
  4. Through a library account on catalog. For help logging in, see the Library Information LibGuide.

Reserve Items

All items on reserve are held behind the circulation desk. Please ask library staff for assistance in locating reserve items. Unless otherwise stated, all reserve items may be checked out and used in the library for 2 hours at a time. Overdue items will accrue fines at a rate of 10 cents per hour.
If a library-owned copy, reserve books may be checked out overnight one-half hour before closing time, but must be returned by the next morning when the library opens.
Please submit a Reserve Request Form with all reserve readings, preferably 24 hours prior to the date of reading assignment. A Reserve Request Form may be downloaded for your convenience.

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is available to faculty, staff and students wishing to borrow books and articles from other libraries. Submit an interlibrary loan request form (available in the library) or email Brooke Ward.
