On-Site Research Appointments

Researchers include patrons using Special Collections non-circulating archival and book collections, LACC non-circulating collections, and Map & Imagery Library collections. Please email us at special@uflib.ufl.edu to discuss a visit or use the form below.

Upon arrival for your scheduled appointment at the Smathers Library, please go to the Grand Reading Room on the 2nd floor.

SASC On-Site Research Request

Due to limited seating in the Grand Reading Room, researchers are encouraged to schedule an appointment for their visit at least one week ahead of time. If materials from an off-site location are required, at least two weeks notice is required. Scheduling your on-site research appointment will serve several purposes. First, it will allow us to determine if a visit is necessary or if the materials might be provided remotely. Second, it will reserve a seat on the specific date and time of your request. Finally, we can make sure materials are pulled and ready for you ahead of your visit.

  • Please use the "Shift" key if you would like to make multiple selections. *Special Collections and University Archives includes Rare Books, Baldwin, Florida History, and Manuscripts.
