UPDATE November 1, 2016 Reimagined and Revitalized Moffitt Library Opens Wednesday
Unlike traditional libraries, Moffitt no longer has shelves of books, which now are housed at the Main (Gardner) Stacks, a multilevel space with some 2.3 million volumes and an underground entrance accessible from both Moffitt and Doe libraries.
Instead, it was designed as a hub for undergraduates eager to prepare for careers in new ways — by learning to navigate data, access technology and work collaboratively with students from diverse disciplines.

The reimagined floors four and five are expected to become a top study destination, with technology services, a wide variety of flexible study and discovery spaces, and student-friendly policies. Studios equipped for Web conferencing and presentation practice are available, as well as an expanded tech help desk, a tech lending service, meeting rooms for group learning, and writeable glass walls to aid in collaboration and brainstorming. A wellness room and living room-like spaces round out the offerings, while expansive windows allow for abundant natural light and sweeping views of Memorial Glade.
