project at a glance

The expansion of John C. Hitt Library at the University of Central Florida is part of the school's 21st Century Library Project, which aims to promote collaborative scholarship, individual research, and creativity by bringing technology improvements and support, as well as additional study areas, to students and faculty alike.

The first phase of construction included expansion of quiet study areas, construction of an Automated Retrieval Center, or ARC, improvement of security and fire safety systems, updates to restrooms, and modernization of elevators and stairwells, among other improvements.

Future phases will include the construction of a building that connects the ARC to the library building, and a complete renovation of additional library buildings to add more group study rooms, as well as graduate student space, a reading room atop the Automated Retrieval Center, a digital commons, more than 3,200 study seats, an expanded special collections and exhibits area, and a redeveloped main entrance on the Student Union side of the building.
