General Library Services
Borrowing Library Materials: Use your Gator 1 cards to check out library materials. Cards may be "activated" for library privileges at any University of Florida library Circulation Desk or by completing our online form.
*To maximize availability, print journals and reference books do not circulate.
Computer Use: Computers are available in the library for your use. A GatorLink account is required for login. Computers are equipped with the latest Microsoft Office programs, internet access and some provide access to specialty programs. Wireless internet access for your mobile devices is also available.
Interlibrary Loan and Request-A-Copy : The library makes every attempt to locate and borrow materials for study, research, or teaching. The purpose of Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is to obtain, upon request by the patron, materials not available in the UF libraries. The normal turnaround time for interlibrary loans is 2-5 work days. If UF does not own the item, then our ILL service will obtain it for you at no charge. If you wish to have our staff copy or scan an article for you that UF has in its collection, there will be a fee.
To submit a request, go to ILLIAD (Interlibrary Loan System).
Photocopying: Charge copying/printing transactions to your Gator-1 card. B/W copying/printing costs $.10 per page. Color copying/printing costs $.50 per page
Reference Services: The HSCL has several reference librarians who can support your clinical, research and teaching needs by locating factual information related to disease, therapy or procedures, including bibliographic instruction and literature searching and analysis. See below for more information.
Your Liaison Librarian
Each College and many Departments, Divisions, and Institutes have a specialist liaison librarian available to provide a wide variety of services including instruction on database and literature searching, literature searches and analysis, assistance with systematic reviews/metanalyses, and assistance with scholarly publishing issues and citation management. Liaisons can make 'house calls' to visit you in your workplace.
The full list of liaison librarian assignments is available at http://library.health.ufl.edu/services/liaisons.html.
