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 one of the two following methods:

1. Use the UF Virtual Private Network, VPN (recommended)
Full instructions for installation can be found on the GatorLink Anyconnect Installation Instructions page.

You must start the VPN application on your device BEFORE launching an internet browser to access library resources.

2. Use Library Proxy

This method may not reliably provide full-text access to library resources.

Remember:  If you hit a "paywall" asking for payment in order to see an article, check to see whether you're using VPN.
