Circulation of Library Materials

Borrowing privileges are limited to Florida Southern College students, faculty, and staff. Presentation of a valid college ID is required to check out materials. Alumni of the College, members of the Board of Trustees, and other individuals designated by the Director of the Library are eligible to receive a library card providing for checkout privileges for two items at a time, subject to all library policies.

Roux Library provides in-house access to many of its physical resources to the public. Priority use of facilities and services is reserved for Florida Southern students, faculty, and staff.

Register to Use the Library

Course Reserves

Many professors place books and other materials on reserve in the library so that students may use them outside of class for special projects. These are shelved at the Circulation Desk, and are available for use in the library or (under limited circumstances established by the professor) for overnight use. Roux Library maintains a core collection of current textbooks on reserve. Click here to search the catalog for Reserve items.

Study Carrels

Students, staff, and faculty of Florida Southern College may make use of six private study carrels on the second floor of Roux Library and four study carrels on the second floor of the McKay Archives. These spaces feature a chair, a table, and an electrical outlet. The rooms may only be used by one individual at a time. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Quality Service Policy

It is the policy of Roux Library and the McKay Archives Center to provide exemplary service to all of our patrons, including students, faculty, staff, community users, and researchers. This three-point Quality Service Policy was adopted by the library staff in September 2007, and was revised in July 2014.
