Library Catalog (Books, E-books, Journals, Videos, & More)

For books not at UF you can either borrow them through UBorrow or the Interlibrary Loan Service (ILLIAD).

UBorrow lets you request print books (not eBooks sadly) directly from participating Florida state university libraries when the item is not available at UF.

ILLIAD is a service that can provide you (a UF library patron) with materials that are not available from the UF Libraries – either copies (of articles and book chapters), or loans (books, microfilm, media, etc.).

Full-text Databases

Includes over 10 million books. Most books published before 1923 can be viewed for free online. More recent books can often only be searched and previewed.

It offers a collection of millions of titles digitized from libraries around the world.

Internet Archive is a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, and more.

The WDL makes available on the Internet, free of charge and in multilingual format, significant primary materials from all countries and cultures.

European Studies Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) Plan

UF students and faculty can now directly request books in the library catalog when these books belong to a specific European Studies focused list (for all other book requests, please email me and I will order them for you). The books in this plan will be of interest to anyone studying German-speaking History, Literature, and Philosophy; Arabic and Slavic History and Literature; as well as European Studies more generally. The books are available in a variety of languages (German, English, French, Swedish, etc…).

To find the books belonging to this plan, you only need to search the catalog using the term harpeuro* (using the search “anywhere”). You can organize the books by looking at the most recent books released, narrow down the search by languages, etc. If you are interested in a book you see, you can send click on “Request this book”. Once you have entered your Gator 1 ID and password, a page will open with a form to fill out. Items can take up to 4 weeks to arrive and even though right now the form recommends you don’t request more than three books per semester, we don’t actually have any limits.

Now, you could also search the catalog for a specific book title and if the book is part of the plan, you will simply click the “Request the book” link and go through the same process. 

Patrons who requested a book are notified when the book arrives in the library.
