Study Areas

Tables and individual carrels are located throughout the library. The entire third and fourth floors are designated as quiet study areas. A smaller quiet study area is available next to the Reference Collection on the First Floor East.

Group study rooms are available for groups of two or more students on a first come, first served basis. Keys for these rooms can be checked out at the library Circulation Desk with an Owl Card. At least two group members must be present at the time of checkout. The rooms are charged out for 2 hours, renewable once.

Outside of library hours, the first and second floors of the Wimbish Wing are designated as 24-hour student study centers.  Additional OIT computer labs are available in the Computing Center, Room 42 and other locations on campus.

  Photocopies can be made at photocopiers located throughout the library, usually near the stairwells and elevators.

The library does not provide change or change machines. Please plan accordingly by keeping sufficient funds on your Owl Card.

Textbook policy
  The Libraries acquire selected Florida elementary and secondary school textbooks for the Curriculum Collection. Current course textbooks are not routinely acquired. Other textbooks are not acquired unless they are considered as definitive sources in the subject area. Exceptions are considered at the request of an instructor. Textbooks cannot be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
