Finding Books

…and other Items Located in the USF Tampa Library

The USF Tampa Library offers books in several formats: circulating printed books, ebooks, books at other locations available via Interlibrary Loan or UBorrow, and reference and reserve items that must stay within the library building. Here’s how you can find them.

Want to find a video, a children’s book or some other item in a special location of the library? This short video tutorial will show you how to do an advanced search to filter for what it is you need to find: Advanced Search – USF Library Catalog

Now that you found the book you want, how do you check it out? This page tells you how: http://www.lib.usf.edu/services/checkout-renewal/

If the USF Tampa Library does not have your book listed in the catalog, chances are we can get it for you from another library. Here’s a short tutorial about UBorrow, a quick way to get the book you need from another Florida library.

If your book is not available through UBorrow, you can request it through InterLibrary Loan as well.
