Learning Resources Centers
The Learning Resources Centers at the Ocala and Citrus campuses are modern library facilities equipped with a variety of materials and resources. The LRCs contain a collection of print, video, DVD, and electronic resources that support student learning. The library staff is focused on providing quality service to CF students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the community, while fulfilling their information and academic needs.
All students have access to a collection of more than 70,000 books, nearly 250 magazine and journal titles, and more than 6,000 videos and DVDs at the Ocala Campus, plus more than 9,000 items at the Citrus Campus. The library provides inter-campus delivery, which allows students to pick up and return materials at either campus. In addition to a book collection that supports CF’s academic programs, the Ocala LRC has the following special collections: the Wisdom Traditions Collection, the Hartigan Equine Collection, the Will McLean Florida Folk Music Collection, the Kenneth H. "Buddy" Mackay Congressional Books, the Abraben Architecture Collection, and the Ocala Royal Dames Cancer Collection. The Citrus LRC has the Walker Environmental Collection.
Information about these items can be accessed through the library website (library.cf.edu). Students can access more than 130 electronic databases, which provide the full text of articles from magazines, journals and newspapers. Approximately 30,000 e-books can be accessed through the library catalog. CF students have access to the resources of the 27 other Florida state and community college libraries and the 11 state university libraries. Items can be obtained directly from any of these libraries through a reciprocal borrowing program or students can use the LRC’s InterLibrary Loan service to have materials delivered to CF. Adaptive technology is available.
If you have any questions about these or other services, ask a reference librarian. The librarians will help you find information quickly and efficiently and will show you how to use the equipment and resources. Call the Reference Desk at 352-854-2322, ext. 1345 or send an email to email@example.com.
The staff at the circulation desk checks out books and other materials, including items on reserve. CF students can check out up to 20 books at a time with their CF student ID cards. Additional information on loan periods, renewals, etc., may be found at the LRC website, library.cf.edu.
