Use this handy guide to learn about and gain access to all the library resources from home or on-the-go!

Materials Checked Out?

While campuses are closed, please wait until the library reopens to return borrowed materials. All fees and fines for Winter Park Campus library materials due during the closure will be waived.

Interlibrary Loan/UBorrow

During the closure, interlibrary loans and requests from other state institutions through UBorrow will be unavailable. All existing interlibrary loan requests for physical items are on hold.
