Alert:

COVID-19 Update: As of Aug. 3, select EFSC services are available on campus, with prior appointments required in most cases and facial coverings and social distancing requirements in place. See the Updated Student Services Guide for details about on-campus access and continuing virtual services. EFSC will reopen its four campuses in August for the Fall Term with many classes online, limited in-person classes and safety measures in place to protect against COVID-19.

Borrowing Materials

Due to the impact of COVID-19, all EFSC Campus Libraries are currently closed, with staff operating remotely. The physical borrowing of materials is available via contactless curbside pick-up, with deadlines for loan periods extended to the end of the term. Please utilize the Library drop boxes located on each campus. Please Note: Only use the drop box that is attached to the Library itself. Articles are still available via Interlibrary Loan.

Borrowing Materials from EFSC Campuses

When you use the search engine known as Mango One Search to find materials from EFSC, you can place a hold on the item and select any campus library for pickup. Library staff will contact you when the item arrives.

  • Requests are filled as soon as possible
  • Materials requested from another EFSC campus usually arrive within two to three working days
  • If borrowed materials are damaged or lost, it is the patron's responsibility to pay replacement costs and processing fees
Borrowing Materials from Other Libraries in Florida

Two options exist to request materials from other libraries. When you use Mango One Search to find materials, the search expands to include the holdings of academic libraries across Florida. If you do not find what you are looking for locally, you can select the blue UBorrow icon to link to them in the union catalog.

To request materials, select the UBorrow icon under the item record and select a pick-up location. Log into your library account. You will be contacted by library staff when the material arrives.

The loan period for UBorrow items is 45 days from the time the item arrives on campus, and you may request one 30-day renewal. UBorrow renewals are placed exactly like EFSC item renewals - through the Renewals/Library Account link in Mango.

Renewals must be placed before the due date, and you will receive an email notification with the new due date or request denial. UBorrow books should be returned to the pickup campus. To learn more, visit the UBorrow FAQs page.

Borrowing Materials from Libraries Outside Florida

Please visit the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) web page for details on a second option if the materials you need are not available from EFSC libraries or other Florida academic libraries.
