The InfoCommons @ UFLibraryWest
The InfoCommons @ UFLibraryWest is located on the 3rd floor of Smathers Library West at the University of Florida. We are open 7 days per week. During Fall and Spring semesters, we are open 24 hrs per day Sundays - Thursdays!
The InfoCommons was designed to foster collaborative learning in a creative environment while matching patron needs with the latest resources and technologies. That means we have approx. 250+ computers available for research, communication, learning, and design and ample group and individual study space throughout the building.
You can borrow equipment (including iPads & Netbooks!) from the 2nd floor Circulation Desk. Reserve a group room in advance via an online reservation system. Studying Solo? Take advantage of the dedicated “quiet study” 4th floor. Grad students can get special access to the 6th floor.
Need a study break? Check out headlines on the news panel in the 3rd floor Neuharth Journalism Study Space or grab a board game. Grab a coffee and/or snack from the Starbucks that's conveniently located on the 1st fl. and always open the same hours as Library West!
FREE tutoring is available from University Writing Center and Office of Academic Support tutors in room 339. FREE "after hours" IT help from a certified computer expert is also available at the new IT "Help Desk in West" (3rd fl).
We also have a Facebook Page and a Twitter Account if you'd like to keep in the loop on the happenings in LW and don't forget to check-in to Foursquare so one day YOU can become the Mayor of Library West.
