FIPR Institute Library Services
Please call 863-583-9094 or 863-333-0804 for assistance.
After 40 years of service to the citizens of Florida and the global phosphate industry community, the FIPR Library has closed its doors as a physical presence at the FIPR campus in Bartow, Florida.
Library staff will now be located at the main campus of Florida Polytechnic University in Lakeland.
Requests for materials or information may still be submitted online or by calling 863-583-9094 or 863-333-0804.
Use the Basic Search form, for books in the Library and digital resources. For books in the FIPR Institute Library only, select the “Books in the Library” checkbox.
The Library serves as a clearinghouse for FIPR Institute’s (and its predecessor FIPR’s) research. Reports are published in .pdf format.
The FIPR Institute Library will check out materials to the Florida residents, and to anyone with borrowing privileges in the Florida Polytechnic University system, regardless of residency. Materials in the circulating collection may be borrowed for up to three weeks. Renewals may be allowed if no other patron has requested the material.
Materials must be checked out in person at the FIPR Institute Library in Bartow, but renewals and holds may be requested in person, by phone (863-583 -9094) or by the general contact form at the bottom of this page.
For Florida residents not able to check out materials in person, as well as non-Florida residents, FIPR Institute Library materials may be requested through interlibrary loan at their local library.
The FIPR Institute can access collections in most libraries in the United States in order to borrow materials. Some libraries that lend materials may charge for their services, and in these cases, the Institute will charge the local user accordingly.
