Reciprocal Borrowing Policy and Procedures

U/C Library allows Reciprocal Borrowing for students and faculty of other public State of Florida community colleges, state colleges, and universities. The borrower must be currently registered as a student or presently employed at one of the public Florida institutions and provide their current home institution's library card and picture ID at the U/CL Circulation Desk.


  • Your institution ID-card is the card used to check out materials from the University/College Library. As the borrower, you are responsible for all items charged to your card and are responsible for the safe return of all library materials.
  • Borrowed materials must be returned directly to the University/College Library.
  • Reciprocal Borrowers must observe all U/CL policies, fines, and charges.
  • Delinquent borrowers will be sent an overdue notice and his/her home institution will be notified.
