UCF also works with several video platforms to provide streaming content.

Serial Set

The U.S. Congressional Serial Set contains the Documents and Reports from Congress, but that brief description fails to capture the richness of the content. Many publications from federal agencies on a wide range of topics were published as Congressional documents.  Rich Gause, Government Information Librarian, has created an entire Guide devoted to finding Anthropology resources in the Serial Set.

Interlibrary Loan

To request a book that UCF does not own (or to request a book from another UCF Campus), use Interlibrary Loan.  If you do not have an account with Interlibrary Loan, please click on "First Time User Registration" below the login form.

To search for books at other libraries, use the State University Libraries' Catalog, or WorldCat.
