Jane Bancroft Cook Library

April 12, 2021 – Update on Library Services

UBorrow service and our access to HathiTrust
UBorrow.  On July 13th, New College, along with all public colleges and universities in Florida, will be migrating to a new library system. In order to transition to this new system, we will begin to close out our current system in May. UBorrow will be taken down on May 1 and will be unavailable until the new system is live in July. However, interlibrary lending via Illiad will remain available throughout. If you need materials from other libraries, please use Illiad (accessed through MyNCF).  Also, as a courtesy to students, staff and faculty all over the state, please return any materials that you have checked out via UBorrow when they are due.

HathiTrust.  During the pandemic, we have had access in-copyright materials from the HathiTrust digital collection (i.e. Google Book Project). This is part of an emergency temporary access program offered by the administrators of HathiTrust.  Our temporary access will cease on May 22. We will 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 Noon 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.
