The following are some resources that are currently available to current students through their respective schools and colleges:


The library staff is available to meet with students one-on-one or in small groups to assist with research. Faculty may schedule library instruction sessions for their classes where students learn how to use the library’s extensive resources and are introduced to research strategies, including how to evaluate their results. A wide selection of articles and electronic resources is available online through USF's Gleeson Library/Geshcke Center. The campus library houses a collection of books, periodicals, videos and DVDs. Our  Document Delivery Service makes it easy for students and faculty to receive additional books and articles from USF and other libraries. For library hours and more information on our services, see the campus library page.
