Services

The Armacost Library offers an array of services that extend its usefulness and function beyond the Eckerd campus.

The selection of holdings grows exponentially through the use of interlibrary loan. You’ll also find information to assist with connecting to library resources from home. Additionally, an entire section of resources for faculty use serve to enhance the learning experience at Eckerd.
