Library Card

Students

Your library card is your BUC Card, which is activated each semester when you register for classes at Florida SouthWestern State College.

Staff and Faculty

Your library card is your BUC Card, which is activated as long as you are officially employed at Florida SouthWestern State College each semester.

Library Card Information

If you have not yet obtained a BUC Card, visit your campus ID Office.

Your library card number is your student/banner ID number (without the “@” symbol). Your library PIN is the last 4 digits of your social security number. If you do not have a social security number, your library PIN is the last 4 digits of your Banner ID (Student Number).  You can change your PIN to any 4 digit combination by clicking here.

Circulation Policies

You must physically present a valid FSW BUC Card at an FSW Library Circulation Desk to borrow or renew library materials.  Borrowers are financially responsible for all resources charged to their accounts. The FSW Libraries reserve the right to recall any resource during the item check out period.
