Welcome! Your library is here for you:

  • We are UNF's Thomas G. Carpenter Library, but you can call us Tommy G's for short
  • The library is named for the University's founding president, Thomas G. Carpenter
  • The original library first opened in 1972 with 100,000 volumes
  • Our collection now includes 800,000 physical items as well as more than 380 research databases with access to millions of journal articles, e-books, and streaming videos
  • The current building opened in 1980; it was renovated in 2005 and again in 2015
  • We are located in Building 12, which bordered by the Green, a lake, and parking lot 2
  • Inside you'll find four floors with lots of study space, quiet nooks, and over 300 computer workstations including PCs and Macs
  • Not on campus? We are still here to help, with virtual resources and services including online research assistance, chatting, and texting
