Finding Credible Sources

Commonly Asked Questions

Students with questions in regard to their library account, database access, fees and fines, books, equipment checked out currently, etc. can email libraryservice@valenciacollege.edu. Students can call the following number for questions regarding your account and checked-out materials: 407-582-2459.

 

Is the library open?

The Osceola Campus is currently closed until further notice. 

I have a book checked out. What do I do?

We will be waiving all late fines on overdue items due while the college is closed. You can also return your books with no human interaction using the drive-up library bookdrop outside of Building 2 by the flagpoles.

I don't have a computer to work on my online class. Can I borrow one?

If you are registered for summer classes, you can request a laptop at valenciacollege.edu/laptop. Please only use this service if you have to, so those who truly need it can have access to a laptop. 

I normally borrow a graphing calculator from the library. Can I still do that?

Yes! Please send an email through Ask a Librarian with your VID and be sure to mention Osceola calculators. You can also find free software online that mimics a graphic calculator - try searching google for free graphing calculators.

What other services are available remotely?

Tutoring and the Career Center have both moved online to help students working remotely. The Virtual Answer Center can also help answer any general questions you may have. Advising and Counseling is now online as well.
