When you are on campus, you automatically have access to the resources that are restricted to UF faculty and students. However, if you work remotely, you do not have automatic access. You have two ways to connect to the campus libraries network: Virtual Private Network (VPN) or the UF Proxy Server. Click on this link to find instructions on how to use either of these methods.
When you go to the main libraries’s website you will see several ways of searching for materials. The most useful to you at the moment are One Search and the Library Catalog. One Search works like google. It results in millions of hits which can be overwhelming. The Library Catalog points to more discrete items. However, in both cases you can refine your search. One Search might be especially helpful to identify secondary resources, while the catalog might allow you to find primary sources easily.
One of the resources that is crucial for you now, and that librarians across UF are staffing on extended hours is Ask a Librarian. You can access this service clicking on the link in this page.

Due to the pandemic, shipping has been effectively shut down in libraries nationwide. As a result, we are unable to place requests for returnable materials like books or microfilm. However, we will continue to process requests for articles and book chapters. This includes requests from UF patrons for scans from our print collections in all library branches. These resources will be delivered electronically. To make a request go to Rapid ILL in the following link.
