A renovation of the fourth floor of UGA’s McBay Science Library will replace the original 1968 climate control and lighting systems and improve study space for our students.
While the project requires temporary relocation of fourth-floor materials, our priority throughout will be to ensure that the University community can access the scholarly resources they need in a timely manner, either through digital access or print retrieval.
A number of UGA Libraries will operate under limited hours during the intersession period between the fall and spring semesters, with all locations closed for winter break beginning Dec. 24, reopening Jan. 3.
Intersession hours will be in place at the Main Library, McBay Science Library, and Miller Learning Center beginning Wednesday, Dec. 14, which means that the locations will not be open for the usual night hours. The MLC will be closed during weekends, and all locations will be closed on Sundays until classes resume on Jan. 9.
Some libraries will remain open during normal business hours, including the Special Collections Libraries and the Music Library, but the Art Library and Map & Government Information Library will be open by appointment only. The Carnegie Library, located on the Health Sciences Campus, will be closed for much of the intersession period, although students with approved card access can access the basement study area during certain hours.
The University of Georgia Libraries now offers the Journal of Visualized Experiments to UGA faculty, staff, and students. The often-requested database contains a trove of well-researched, peer-reviewed videos that delve into a wide range of academic topics.
The tool contains videos introducing key concepts and techniques for instruction and lab settings that can be helpful for on-boarding students and more. In all, the database contains more than 15,000 peer-reviewed research videos with new additions coming each year.
The educational videos hit on topics from biosciences, chemistry to engineering, environmental sciences, genetics, medicine, and neuroscience.

UGA Libraries has established a new fund that supports open access to knowledge while helping graduate student researchers fulfill their academic goals.
The pilot program provides funding for open access publication fees for graduate students whose research papers have been accepted by peer-reviewed academic journals. Those fees make research available freely online, but can be costly for students. The fund is a way for the Libraries to partner with other academic departments to enable that avenue of publication.
UGA Libraries’ course reserve services allow faculty to enhance their instruction with additional readings and supplementary research materials, while cutting down costs for students. For faculty planning Spring 2022 courses, course reserve services and support are currently open, and requests submitted by December 3 are guaranteed to be completed and accessible by the first day of spring semester classes.
EITS will conduct network maintenance that will result in complete outages of campus Internet access and campus information systems on Saturday, October 23, 2021 from 6:00 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. This outage is expected to cause a major disruption to library services and resources, both on campus and off campus.
Please make note that unlike previous planned network maintenances where there were intermittent outages, this maintenance will result in a complete outage of access to services. UGA students faculty, staff, and students should be aware of interruptions to library services, which will impact those accessing resources on campus or at home.
UGA Libraries’ full course reserve services and support are available to faculty planning fall 2021 courses. Requests submitted by July 16 are guaranteed to be completed and accessible by the first day of fall semester classes.
