Borrowing Privileges

Osprey1CardThe Library at UNF is a resource for the campus community first but it is also a resource for Jacksonville & NE Florida.  UNF students are automatically able to check out materials with their Osprey1Card (student ID).  Others may request special borrowing privileges.  Check out eligibility requirements at the policy below.


Books & Media

The Library houses over 800,000 items in the building and provides access to millions more online.  Ebooks can be read online or "checked out" by downloading for use offline (ebook checkouts vary from 3 to 7 days).  Did you know that undergraduate students can check out 100 items at a time, including up to 40 media items?  Graduate students can have 250.  It's true.  Check out more about loan periods and fines at the policy below.  


The Library offers over 300 computers for your use, including 40+ laptops.  We have MacBooks and Dell laptops which can be checked out for 3 hours at a time.  Don't forget your Osprey ID - it's your library card too!
