 How do I get a TCC ID Card?

 

​From the campus Cashier's Office, located in the One Stop Center on the second floor in the Student Union Building, next door to the Library.

Office hours and required documentation are listed on their web site. Once you have a card, you can get the semester validation stickers from the Cashier's Office.


If you are a Distance Learning Student you may request a non-photo ID card to use the library online databases or reciprocal library services in your geographic area. Be sure to include your first and last name, your address, telephone, and e-mail. Send an e-mail request to the TCC Cashier.

If you live in the tri-county area (Leon, Gadsden & Wakulla) or will be coming on campus to use any of the campus Learning Commons services (Writing, Math & Science Centers, Student Media Project area), the campus Computer Labs, or the Testing Center, you will need to come on campus to obtain a photo-ID card from the Cashier's Office in person.

For more information, consult the ID card page.

 

 My borrower ID number isn’t working. What do I do?

 

The borrower ID number is the 14-digit number on the bottom of your TCC ID Card. The PIN should be the last 4 digits of your social security number.  
If this isn’t working, contact the Circulation Department at the Library in person, by telephone at (850) 201-8376, or e-mail.

Have your TCC ID Card ready nearby when you phone.
When e-mailing, include your name and the number beneath the bar code on your TCC ID Card.
If you’ve forgotten your PIN it can be reset online

 

 Does the library check out laptops?

 
​Current students may check out either a HP mini or HP ProBook from the main campus library or Ghazvini LLC.  Students must complete the Student Laptop Checkout Form before checking out a laptop for the first time.  The form should be submitted online and a print copy turned into the Library.
 

 Where are reserve materials?

 
Reserve materials are items TCC instructors have placed for student use at the Circulation Desk, on the first floor of the Library. Reserve materials can include additional reading assignments, sample test questions, class notes, and other course related supplements. Reserve items are arranged by course number (located on your schedule or syllabus). You will need your TCC ID Card to view any reserve materials located in the library.

Reserve materials are checked out for one hour at a time, and are "in-house-use", which means they are to be used only within the Library/Learning Commons building. Removing a reserve item from the Library/Learning Commons building will result in a student’s library privileges being blocked , i.e. the student will not be allowed access to any other reserve materials for any class for the rest of the semester. Any items not returned within 24 hours of checkout will result in the student being charged the replacement cost of the item, and their instructor will be notified.
 

 The book I need is checked out. Can I request to have it when it’s returned?

 
​If LINCCWeb shows that an item is checked out, you may request to have it next by clicking on the “request” link. The Circulation Desk will notify you as soon as the item is returned. 
 

 Does the library have textbooks?

 

​The library does not purchase textbooks, however many instructors have lent us copies of their textbooks to place on Reserve. Textbooks are checked out for one hour for in-library use. 

A current TCC ID card is required.

 

 How long is the check-out period?

 

​Books and videos check out for 2 weeks with the possibility of one renewal. Reserve materials (textbooks), Reference books, magazines, newspapers and some of our videos are for in-library use only. 

You can renew items checkout out on your card from our website using the My Account feature. If you wish to renew an overdue item, you'll need to call Circulation services at (850) 201-8376.

 

 Can I check out books from FSU or other colleges?

 
​Current students and staff of any public college or university are eligible to use selected resources at any other public college or university library through our statewide reciprocal borrowing agreement. These privileges often include the ability to check out books and select other physical materials and the use of the library facility for studying. Locally, this means that TCC students may use the libraries at FSU and FAMU. Students must show TCC ID card with a current semester sticker to utilize these services. Materials checked out are subject to local rules regarding check out period and overdue fees.​​
 

 Who can borrow books and other materials?

 

​Borrowing of all Library items - books, videos, reserves, etc.- is a privilege available to TCC students, faculty and staff. Reciprocal Privileges are also available to individuals from other Florida public universities and community colleges with current college IDs.

 

 Printing and Photocopying services in the Library

 

​An allotment of prints or photocopies is currently subsidized by student fees for current students. Additional printing and printing for non-students is available for a small fee. Photocopying is available on both floors of the Library.
