Community Access Program

Since its inception in 1996, the Florida Coastal School of Law (Coastal) Library and Technology Center has been developing its collection of legal and law-related resources. Books, topical loose-leaf services, federal and state court decisions, law reviews, legal and general periodicals, international materials, legal encyclopedias, historical works, finding aids, and reference materials are housed in a newly renovated facility conveniently located minutes from downtown on Baypine Road.

Recognizing the need for access to a research-level law library in the dynamic Jacksonville metropolitan area, Coastal has established a program that allows lawyers and professors of the local community to use the Center’s materials and services.  The first visit to the Library and Technology Center is free of charge. In order to use the Center more than once, a lawyer or professor must join the CAP program. CAP members receive an ID card that allows them access to the building whenever the Center is open and can function as a copy card for the Library copy machines. Call (904) 680-7600 for current hours or go to hours webpage.

The general public is allowed one visit to the Library and Technology Center free of charge.

As a Community Access member, you have onsite access to the Library’s extensive collection, including books, periodicals, and microforms during regular library hours. You also have limited access to the computer network access and you are welcome to use the services offered at the Reference Desk. Document Delivery Service is also available. Documents may be faxed, e-mailed, or sent via regular mail. Document Delivery Cost is $15 for documents up to 10 pages, and $1 per page thereafter.
