Library Services Information:
Campus and Library Closure
Due to the KCAD campus closure and restricted access for faculty and staff, the KCAD Library will be closed. All in-person patron services are suspended. We have set up this guide to provide information and assistance in accessing resources and services remotely.

Off-Campus Access
You have off-campus access to a rich collection of online resources. Your gateway to those resources is through the KCAD Library website and/or the FLITE website. When prompted, you will login with your MyFSU and password.

TIP: When using SmartSearch, remember to login on your search result page. This will allow you to easily access resources in your result list.

Due Dates:
KCAD Library and FLITE have extended the due date for library materials to September 15, 2020. 

The MeLCat system continues to be suspended. Dues dates for MeLCat items have not changed. However, there will be no fines or fees charged for MeLCat materials during this time. As soon as the system comes back online, we will send out information.

Returning Library Materials:
You may put ALL KCAD, FLITE, ILL and MeLCat 
materials in the blue KCAD Library drop box located outside the 17 Fountain Building.

Ferris students, faculty and staff may also return all materials using the KCAD Library drop box.

When it is possible, library materials will be returned to their proper locations. Please note, no fines or fees will be charged during this time
