Library Catalog and Databases

The Library website (library.cf.edu) provides access to the CF catalog and databases, after logging into MyCF:

  • The Catalog and Discovery Tool links provide information about the 76,000 books and 6,000 audio visual materials available in the Ocala and Citrus libraries and access to 44,000 full-text electronic books and 15,000 e-videos. The catalog can also be used to request books from other Florida state colleges.
  • The Libraries provide access to databases of electronic journal articles. Examples of these databases include Academic Search Complete (5,300 full-text periodicals, including 4,400 peer-reviewed journals); JSTOR (the complete digitized full text of 700 core scholarly journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, some dating as far back as the 1600s); CINAHL Plus Full Text (the full text of 560 journals and indexing for 1,835 journals in the fields of nursing and allied health); and Literary Reference Center Plus from EBSCO (full-text literary criticism, biographical information, works overviews, reference essays, journal articles and reviews for 130,000 writers).
