Jane Bancroft Cook Library

Reminder: The library will be closed this Monday, May 31, in observance of Memorial Day

Congratulations to all of our students, staff, and faculty on your accomplishments during academic year 2020.  We hope your summer is restful, restorative, and fun.  And we look forward to fall 2021.  Stay safe and well.

May 28, 2021 – Update on Library Services

Coming soon!  Our new integrated library system, Alma and Primo VE, will go live on July 13th.  Stay tuned for more information a little later this summer.

UBorrow is currently suspended until July 13th.  If you need to borrow materials from another library, use your ILLIAD account (accessed through MyNCF) to do so.  Need more info?  Contact one of the librarians listed below.
If you have materials checked out through UBorrow, please help us have a smooth transition to our new system by returning your materials by the due date.

Our emergency access to resources via HathiTrust has been suspended.  We continue to have access to HathiTrust materials that are in the public domain.

If you have any questions about these changes, the new library system, or other library resources or services, please contact the library at (941) 487-4305 or email library@ncf.edu .

Our current open hours are: 8 AM to 10 PM Monday through Thursday, 8 AM to 5 PM on Friday, and 2 PM to 10 PM on Sunday, to members of the New College and USF Sarasota-Manatee communities.   Please have your ID available when you visit the library.
The Library is closed on Saturday.
