New Books at John C. Hitt

July New Books at the John C. Hitt Library

New books to the left of you. New books to the right of you. New books on the shelves. New books all around.

New books enter the UCF Libraries system on a regular basis. At the John C. Hitt Library, we select those with interesting titles, eye-catching dust jackets, or timely topics to feature on a display. The books range in subject from photography, science, and history to poetry, novels, and biographies. The display, which is next to the seating area at the Research & Information Desk, changes on a weekly basis.

Stop by. Maybe there will be one you want to take home with you.

Here is a small selection of the 57 books that are currently on the display which ranges from American History and poetry to education and FIFA scandals:

Noise alert, John C. Hitt Library

From now through early August, it is expected that construction noise will increase in the John C. Hitt Library.
Demolition of the north side of the 1st floor of the building is underway, and can be seen from outside the building or from upper floors. Equipment is being used to tear off the metal roof of the 1st floor section that protrudes toward the Student Union. This is the area previously occupied by Government Documents and a cluster of 1st floor study rooms. This entire area on the inside has been cleared of ceiling, walls and flooring. Over the coming weeks it will get particularly noisy on the north end, as contractors break up the concrete slab and the subsurface vertical concrete wall facing the ARC building. The library has requested that contractors do whatever possible to mitigate the noise.

The 1st floor remains closed. Earplugs are available at the Circulation Desk. The 5th floor silent study zone is open, and is not on the same side of the building as the excessive noise.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and the disturbance. Thank you Knights—charge on!
