Library Branches

Library West

UF has seven libraries on campus! Each library specializes in one or more subject areas. A full-sized map is available above as a PDF file. Click here for more information about each of UF Libraries branches and collections.


Off-campus access

Off campus access to library-licensed e-Journals, research databases and e-resources is limited to current UF students, staff, and faculty. In order to access this material from off campus you must authenticate yourself to the UF network using either the VPN (virtual private network) or the Library Proxy. See instructions here.

Remember:  If you hit a "paywall" asking for payment in order to see an article, first check to see whether you're using VPN or Proxy service if you are off-campus. If you still cannot access the full text without paying a fee, you can request the publication from another library using InterLibrary Loan (see below).

Ask A Librarian

Ask a Librarian is a free service for those seeking assistance with library and research-related questions from reference staff. We answer questions in-person and by phone at our in-library service desks, and online through email, instant messaging, and texting.
