Why use the library?
When should you use the Marston Science Library and its guides and licensed sources?
- To use group study rooms, collaborative project space, and quiet study space.
- To use the 3D printers, Made@UF Lab, and the VizWall.
- For efficient tools to help you filter and manage your search results.
- For authoritative data and formulas (see e-books and websites).
- For troubleshooting when you need to analyze commonalities and look for patterns. Use a range of sources, including books and journal articles to counteract the limits of personalized channels (search history, current location, etc.)
