Faculty Resources

Policies and procedures for faulty and adjuncts needing library resources or instruction.

Check-Out a Media Item

Media can be checked-out from all campus locations. The Ft. Pierce campus only allows faculty and staff to check-out videos. The media collection at Ft. Pierce is intended to support the classroom experience rather than provide entertainment value. Students can view media in the library only. Search for a title by limiting the Format to Audio/Visual in the IRSC catalog. Don't see what you want? Ask a librarian for a recommendation or submit a request to purchase a specific title.
