As part of continuing library services during this time, we will also expand access to digital and digitized materials as we are able (within availability and within copyright restrictions).
Please use our form to request a scan from physical library materials (books, magazines, or other items you normally find in the library) and we will email it to you: FORM.
Faculty are encouraged to suggest books, periodicals (magazines, newspapers, academic/scholarly journals, etc.), databases, films, music, and other materials for purchase. Requests for new acquisitions—print and electronic—may be made at any time.
Materials needed to support a specific course should be requested far enough in advance to ensure availability when classes begin.
A Digital Library Card from the Sarasota County Libraries wll allow you to access all of the public library's online resources, including Florida Electronic Library databases such as Demographics Now. You can also use resources such as cloudlibrary and Overdrive to borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks.
