For approximately 2 weeks, quiet study on the 5th floor of the John C. Hitt Library will be suspended. Testing of furniture for the new 5th floor quiet zone will be taking place, so quiet on the floor will be disrupted by that activity. Today, Tuesday, January 19, furniture is being assembled and set in place. Details on your participation in the testing will be available here soon. 4th floor will remain dedicated to quiet study during this time.
The UCF Libraries held it’s inaugural “Color Your Stress Away” event during finals week. We added a coloring station to the main floor of the John C. Hitt Library with coloring supplies, including UCF Librarian paper dolls, and custom UCF coloring sheets with Knightro and our stained glass window.

265 Knightro coloring sheets
60 UCF John C. Hitt Library stained glass coloring sheets
850 assorted non-UCF coloring sheets
The UCF Libraries Special Collections & University Archives is pleased to announce the UCF Student Book Arts Competition Exhibit. Each year since 2005, Special Collections & University Archives invites UCF students to submit one of a kind books called artist’s books. Unlike traditional books, artist’s books are handmade to reflect personal artistic visions of their creators ranging from narrative storytelling through drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and/or personal text. The UCF Student Book Arts Competition Exhibit is a showcase of all entries submitted for the 2015 competition including past winners. A panel of jurors selects the best entry and the winner receives a purchase award and has their work added to the permanent Book Arts & Typography Collection in Special Collections & University Archives. The UCF Student Book Arts Competition Exhibit will be on display during the month of February 2016 in the exhibition area on the 5th Floor of the John C. Hitt Library.
