The University of North Florida Thomas G. Carpenter Library’s overall mission of support for student and faculty academic success remains consistent, however, the way we offer services continues to evolve to stay on-trend with the nation's leading libraries.
Last year there were more than 503,000 visits to the UNF Library by students, faculty, and community members. The UNF Library facility is critical for housing materials and our community's history, providing quiet study space, facilitating collaborative learning to promote an inclusive future workforce, providing spaces to enhance learning such as the Virtual Learning Center and new Recording Studio, and providing access to online materials vital to research and class assignments.
The UNF Library also makes it possible for students and faculty to access more than 1.1 million e-books, over 700,000 online journals, and download more than 856,000 million documents online. In fact, in 2022-23 researchers from 208 countries utilized this library's educational resources. The UNF Library offers a vast amount of online information in Digital Commons - our “library without walls” - and also believes it is important to provide online recognition of our supporters.
Your generosity to the UNF Library -- which positively impacts students -- is critical. Please browse each of the Library Funding Initiatives for sure-fire ways you can support student success!
We deeply appreciate everyone’s contributions as we collectively strive to change the world one step at a time – one question, one book, one laptop, one search, one archived collection, one project, one student, one faculty member’s research paper, one financial gift – every effort makes a difference and will enrich our community's future.
With warm regards,
Jennifer Murray, Interim Dean
