SCF Libraries provide a wide range of resources and services. In addition to our regular collection of books, ebooks, audiovisual materials and online databases, we provide library instruction, subject guides and tutorials, citation guides, course reserves, and inter-library loan service.
The Librarians at SCF are also available to our faculty for consultation about resources to support teaching and learning, development of assignments that support information literacy, and the use of technology to enhance the discovery of knowledge.
As SCF employees, faculty also have access to our collections of popular and recreational readings (books, ebooks, and audiobooks), free subscriptions to electronic magazines (Flipster database,) DVDs and streaming films (Feature Films database), and many other resources for your personal interests. Meet with a librarian to go over these free services!
Please feel free to contact us. We can come to your office for an individual consultation, or you can meet with us in our offices at the Bradenton or Venice libraries or at the learning commons at Lakewood Ranch.
