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 77,000 books and 5,000 audio visual materials available in the Ocala and Citrus libraries and access to 100,000 full-text electronic books and 34,000 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 Complete (the full text of 1,300 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 260,000 writers).
