Library Policies

Book Mail Delivery

Book Delivery by Mail   

Upon request, SCF books can be mailed to distance students who do not come to campus and who live outside Manatee, Sarasota and Charolotte Counties.

Please work with a librarian to ensure:

  • that there isn't an online resource already available
  • prompt delivery of SCF Library books.


ADA Assistance

The Library will assist in any way that it can.  Please coordinate any Library services that you may need with the Disability Resource Center (DRC) 941-752-5295.

Find Articles Not Available at SCF

Make sure you have as much journal article information as possible including author(s), title, name of Journal, volume, issue, publication date and page numbers. - Search the Journal name in Journals A-Z to see if SCF Library Resources and Databases include the full text of the Journal. - Go to Articles First via First Search, use the information you do have to find the articles or at least the Journal.

How Long will it take? Approx. 2 weeks. How much will it cost? Interlibrary Loan is free as long as the lending institution does not charge. If there is a charge, you will be contacted for approval.
