  • Currently registered MDC students, alumni
  • MDC full-time employees

Reciprocal Borrowing

A valid MDC Card may be used for borrowing privileges at the libraries of all Florida College System and Florida State Universities.

Inter-Campus / Inter-library Loan

Books or articles that are not available in your campus library may be obtained from other campuses via inter-campus loan (ICL), or from other institutions via ILL Request Form.

Items that can be obtained from libraries within the Florida College System are usually received within three to seven days. Other items may take up to two weeks to receive. The loan period for an ILL item depends on the policy of the lending institution.

Virtual students can obtain articles and electronic books via e-mail. Books in print requested through ILL must be picked up at one of our campus libraries.
