The procedure for placing items on Reserve:

  • Fill out form completely and select a checkout period. Options include: Library Use Only, One Day, One Week, etc. 

  • Sign and return form to any campus library Circulation Desk with the materials to be placed on reserve.

  • Allow at least 24 hours after submitting a Reserve Materials Request Form before assigning reserve materials to a class.

  • Instruct students to go to their campus library Circulation Desk to request reserve items. They will need to have an EFSC Photo ID to use reserve materials. Overdue fines are incurred for late returns and vary by item.

Curriculum Support Materials -- Possible Purchases

Purchase is dependent upon budget availability and adherence to criteria outlined in the Collection Development and Management Procedures.

Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement

Florida’s public colleges and universities signed a Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement In 1999. The agreement provides students, staff, and faculty at any of these institutions the right to borrow materials from the other institutions.

A valid EFSC Library Card will be required in order to check out any material.

Scheduling Library Orientation / Instruction Classes

Librarians offer library orientation / instruction sessions in each library's classroom lab or in your own classroom.  These sessions can be constructed collaboratively, so they fit into your syllabus and aid students in successfully completing your assignments and learning what you want them to.

Go to the Instruction & Information Literacy webpage for more information and phone numbers to contact each campus library's Reference Desk, to schedule those sessions for your students.

Library Liaisons for Each Discipline

Each discipline on campus has a corresponding librarian attached to it. 

You can utilize our expertise in designing assignments and learning outcomes, in creating library orientation / instruction sessions for your students, and in learning how to use various eResources that the library licenses for EFSC students and faculty.

Visit the Library Services for Faculty webpage for more information and to locate your liaison librarian.
