FSCJ faculty, staff, retirees of FSCJ, and students currently enrolled in a Florida State College at Jacksonville course for which learning support services are provided may request non-FSCJ owned materials be borrowed via FSCJ and picked up at any LLC location. Assistance with this process is available upon request.

Inter-Campus Loan: Borrowing and lending of college-owned library items from any FSCJ library is a service provided to all FSCJ faculty, staff, retirees of FSCJ, and students currently enrolled in a Florida State College course for which learning support services are provided. FSCJ owned materials may be requested online for pick up at any LLC location. Assistance with this process is available upon request.
