New to "U"? (University of Central Florida Libraries)

Whether you're a new "DirectConnect to UCF" transfer student or a new transfer student from another college or university, here's information to help you locate the library resources you'll need for research assignments.

Requesting Books in Primo Search

When searching for books through the UCF library catalog, be sure to pay attention to the location. The following video will demonstrate how to use the library catalog to request a book -- whether the book is located on a library shelf -- or stored in the ARC (Automated Retrieval Center).  Books stored in the ARC can generally be retrieved for you to check out from the circulation desk (second floor of the John C. Hitt Library) within 10 to 20 minutes; timing for delivery to other locations will vary.


Finding eBooks

Watch this video below to see two different ways to search for ebooks using our library catalog.
