Remote access to the UCF Libraries databases are only available to currently enrolled or currently employed UCF students, faculty, and staff as well as UCF retirees. These restrictions are due to licensing agreements with various companies that provide the many UCF databases. For students to have remote access to databases they must be listed in the Registrar database as enrolled in at least one class for the semester currently underway at UCF. For employees to have remote database access they must be listed in the Human Resources database as currently employed. The UCF General Counsels office has verified that for the Library to provide remote database access to patrons who are not authorized for remote access would be a violation/breach of our contracts.
Weekly the Library patron database is updated and compared with the Registrar and Human Resources databases. Any Library patron who is not listed as a current student or current employee will have their Library ID number deactivated. Account deactivations can also occur due to outstanding Library fines, or other holds on your account. If you feel that your card has been wrongly deactivated please contact the Circulation Desk at (407) 823-2580. Access to Library provided databases is always available to anyone using any publicly accessible computer in the Library. Florida public libraries also provide access to many database resources, contact your local public library for assistance.
If a student is enrolled in classes during the spring semester and registers for classes for the fall semester, but is not taking any classes during the summer sessions, the student remains activein PeopleSoft and therefore retains full library privileges (including remote access to databases) over the summer.
If a student is registered for classes for the fall semester, but was not enrolled in classes during the spring semester and is not taking any classes during the summer sessions, then their library privileges will not become active until the beginning of the fall semester.
