A guide to the Physics subject resources available from the University of Florida Libraries.

Library Catalog


Books and journal subscriptions (print and electronic) can be found in the catalog - search by Title or Journal Title. To find books on a particular subject, try an Anywhere or Subject Heading search.

You can use the UBorrow function to borrow books at other state university libraries if no copy is available locally at UF. The number of items available for UBorrow will be shown in the top right of the catalog page after you perform your search:

You will need to log into your Library Account, using your GatorLink username and password, to request a book through UBorrow. You can also keep track of your requests through your account.

If you can't locate the book in the UF catalog or using UBorrow, you can order it through Interlibrary Loan. You will need to create a separate ILL account with your contact information and specify as much information as you can about the desired book.
