Springs Exhibit

Stop by the Rosen campus library to check out our new exhibit, Florida’s Natural Springs! What better way to start the spring semester than by exploring the bubbling, cold spring waters that make Florida’s ecosystem so unique.

The exhibit features items such as photographs, pamphlets, sketches, and newspaper articles that tell a brief history of visitation to various springs in the state, including Silver Springs, Weeki Wachee Springs, De Leon Springs, and many others.

Small, hand-made dioramas of the springs highlight the different items throughout the display. There are also books atop the display case relating to Florida’s springs that are available for check-out.

The exhibit was curated by Emily Horne from Rosen and Burak Ogreten from Special Collections and Archives. It will be on display until the end of the spring semester.

Temporary 3rd Floor Closure at the John C. Hitt

The 3rd floor of the John C. Hitt Library will be closed between Tuesday, January 19 – Saturday, January 23, 2021.

This temporary closure is part of the preparation for the upcoming renovations to the 3rd floor spaces which will begin later this year. Stairwells and elevators will be marked with signs and caution tape as a reminder that the floor is not accessible.

If you need a book or other physical library material located on the 3rd floor, please request it at ucflib.fyi/requestbooks

The 3rd floor restrooms in the original 1967 portion of the building near the bank of three elevators will permanently close on January 19, 2021. New restrooms will be added to that section as part of the renovations.
