Construction Duck

U. S. Documents affected by 1st floor closure

Because of the preliminary construction on the 1st floor, about 40% of print U.S. Documents are temporarily stored offsite and are completely inaccessible. The remaining materials are accessible for staff to retrieve for patrons, but the 1st floor is closed to the public through the end of September.

Our UCF Ask A Librarian service will attempt to verify the availability of specific items. They will pass along requests to Government Documents librarian, Rich Gause, for anything they cannot locate.

See the guide at https://guides.ucf.edu/govx for more information.
Thank you for your patience!

Noise Alert! Starting Tuesday, 6/19

Pardon our DuckStarting Tuesday June 19th, you may hear intermittent popping, banging, drilling and grinding noise as contractors begin construction of a temporary wall on the 1st floor of the John C. Hitt Library. The wall is the first step in a 16 month project to connect the current library building to the ARC. This phase of the project will include the new 2nd floor entrance to the building on the “Student Union side”, as well as new staff and user space.

Earplugs can be requested at the Circulation Desk. The new, 170 seat, 5th floor Quiet Study Zone is almost complete and is open for student use. It is located at the front of the building, away from the construction noise. Some of the noise may be detected from there, but it should be quieter.

Pardon our dust. Thank you, Knights, for your patience. Charge on.
