 Circulation of Library Materials

 

Students

Students may check out up to ten circulating items for two weeks, with up to two renewals.  A current student ID is required. Items not yet overdue may be renewed in person, via telephone (850) 201-6189) or online via MyAccount

TCC Faculty and Staff

TCC Faculty and Staff may check out regular circulating items until the end of the current semester.  Non-circulating items including Reference books, periodicals and non-circulating videos, may also be checked out for a limited time. See library staff for details. A current TCC ID card is required. 

Overdue materials

The TCC Library does not charge overdue fines. Patrons with significantly overdue or damaged materials will be assessed the full replacement cost of the item plus a $5 per item processing fee. 
 

 Computer Use

 

The TCC Library has computers available for use by TCC Students.  Current students are allotted a specific amount of printing per semester, pre-paid from student fees.  Additional printing is available for a small fee.  

In addition to the student computers, four computers are available on the first floor for use by anyone over the age of 18. Printing is available for a fee.  

TCC library visitors are expected to adhere to TCC Policy 03-26 (Computer Security and Access, Software Licensing, and Electronic Correspondence) and the TCC Student Code of Conduct

​Group and single use study rooms are available for currently enrolled TCC and University Partner student groups. Keys for rooms on the first floor are checked out at the Access Services Desk. Keys for the second floor rooms are checked out at the Reference Desk. Study rooms are available in two-hour time blocks. Dry erase markers are available upon request. 
 

 Photocopiers and Fax Services

Faxing is provided for current TCC students at the 1st floor Circulation Desk.  A current TCC ID card is required. 

 

 Collection Development Policy

 
The primary collection development goal of the Tallahassee Community College library is to provide and maintain collections in a variety of formats that support the curriculum and instructional programs of the College, a two-year lower division institution.  A secondary priority is to provide resources that support and enrich personal and professional growth and promote the development of an engaged and informed citizenry.  This policy outlines the standards and guidelines for the selection and maintenance of the Library’s collection, serves as a consistent framework for those responsible for collection development and communicates library policy to students, faculty, staff and the community.

 Children

 
The TCC Library strives to provide a learning environment conducive to study and research for students, faculty, staff and community members. Children are welcome in the library, but, in order to preserve the rights and privileges of other patrons and to protect your children, the following guidelines must be followed:
  • Children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver who will be responsible for continuous supervision, including appropriate behavior.
  • Loud, noisy, or disruptive behavior is inappropriate and the adult will be asked to remove the child from the building until such behavior is mitigated.
  • Any person under the age of 18, except registered TCC students, may not use a public computer due to non-filtered Internet access.
  • If a child is left in the library without adult supervision, Campus Police will be notified.
  • Anyone not abiding by these guidelines will be asked to leave the library.
 

 Reciprocal Borrowing

 

Current students and staff of any Florida public college or university are eligible to use selected resources at any other Florida college library through our statewide reciprocal borrowing agreement. 

These privileges often include the ability to check out books and select other 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 their 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.​​

 

 Services for the General Public

 

​Current students and staff of any Florida public college or university are eligible to use selected resources at any other Florida college library through our statewide reciprocal borrowing agreement.  Students must show their current school ID card and be in good standing at their home institution to utilize these services. At TCC, these privileges include the ability to check out books and select other physical materials and the use of the library facility for studying.  Reference materials and serials may be used in-house but not checked out. 

Public-use computers are available on the 1st floor of the library on a first-come basis. The Library provides printing and photocopying services to all users for a fee. Open Wi-Fi access is available on both floors of the library.
