The majority of our electronic databases and journals are restricted for use only by UF faculty, staff, and students. If you are on campus, the library recognizes your IP address, however if you are off campus, you will need to log on using the UF VPN software.
You can now use the declining balance feature of your Gator 1 card in order to pay for copying/printing in the libraries. Black and White copying/printing will cost $0.10 per page, and is available from all campus libraries. Color copying/printing will cost $0.50 per page, and is available from the AFA Library, Marston Science Library, and the Health Science Center Library. If you are a current UF student, faculty, or staff, you can add money to your Gator 1 card through the Gator 1 Center web site. For a complete step-by-step guide, please visit the Printing in the Libraries page. Once you have added funds to your Gator 1 card, it will take approximately 10 minutes for the transaction to be credited to your account. If you wish to obtain a departmental copier account, please visit the Gator 1 Center office and complete the Library Vending Debt Card form. You can also check out bound journals to photocopy articles in your department or copy center. Another option is to use the scanners located on the 2nd and 3rd floors to make PDF of the article which you than you can save on USB drive, burn to a CD, or email to yourself.
