Feeling lost? This week, at the entrance to the John C. Hitt Library, an Information Kiosk has been set up for anyone with a question about UCF. Take a minute to talk to the friendly Libraries folks. They will connect you to the information you need. Start off the new academic year with a smile.
Matt DeSalvo is the UCF Libraries 2015 Employee of the Year! Matt is an End User Computing Specialist, part of the Libraries Information Technology and Digital Initiatives.

Beginning June 29th 2015 the UCF John C. Hitt Library will be shifting the books in the stacks to make room for the 5th floor renovation starting in Spring 2016. The redesign will provide critical physical study space to meet the needs of the University and of the future generation of scholars.
During the shifting if you are unable to locate a book, please ask staff for assistance. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve the library for our users
