Library Services

A full-service library is located on each of PHSC's campuses. The combined holdings of all libraries are over 90,000 books and over 3,000 audiovisual resources. In addition to print books and physical audiovisual resources, patrons may access more than 200,000 electronic books, articles from 38,000 journals in electronic format and over 30,000 streaming video titles from more than 100 electronic databases. The Library Catalog allows students and faculty to locate physical and electronic resources held by PHSC's libraries, as well as borrow library resources owned by any college library in the Florida College System and State University System via UBorrow. Additionally, students and faculty can access Electronic Library Resources directly through our A-Z database list.

The libraries provide full intercampus and interlibrary loan services. Copies of articles in books or journals owned by the library may be transmitted between libraries. Students can make use of student room, computers, course reserve textbooks, and anatomy models at all campus libraries.

The library staff on each campus is trained to assist students and faculty to make full use of the library's facilities and materials. Instruction in using the library's resources is provided to any student or class that requests it. In addition, students can get help from a librarian virtually, using our statewide Ask a Libraries services. Instructors can make use of our embedded librarian services to have a librarian service to have a librarian in their Canvas Course.

The West Campus library houses an art gallery featuring monthly shows with a variety of themes exhibited for the benefit of students, faculty and the community.
