The George A. Smathers Libraries works collaboratively with academically administered libraries independent of the UF library system that have significant, specialized collections. The goal of this effort is to expand access to and awareness of the resources held by the affiliated libraries as a supplement to the holdings of the George A. Smathers Libraries. Affiliated library holdings are integrated into the UF Libraries catalog. Borrowing privileges are determined by the Affiliated Libraries; some allow limited circulation, others offer in-building use, and others recommend requesting their material through Interlibrary Loan.
See instructions for finding Affiliated Libraries materials in the library catalog. See the Affiliated Libraries Working Group for goals, policies and agreements. For information about the statewide shared collection, see SUS Shared Collection Facility/FLARE.
