Beginning with the fall 2022 semester, access to UGA Libraries locations will be limited to members of the UGA community and other educational affiliates during late-night hours.
A construction project this summer at the University of Georgia’s McBay Science Library may disrupt quiet study for a time, yet access to books and library services will continue throughout the construction period.
The project entails upgrades to the library’s entryway, service desk, and entry floor study spaces, and is expected to be completed prior to the beginning of the fall semester. In addition, the work includes a permanent exhibit to honor Shirley Mathis McBay, the first Black student to receive a doctorate from UGA and national leader in promoting quality STEM education for people of color.
Need help with your research? Librarians and research experts at the University of Georgia are hosting the virtual Spring into Research series to provide students with the tools they need to research, write papers and dissertations, and present their projects.
Students can sign up for any or all of the 12 individual workshops offered Monday, March 21 through Friday March, 25 via Zoom.
Update as of 12/7/21:
University System of Georgia Board of Regents has approved the naming of the UGA Science Library for the Shirley Mathis McBay, the first African American to earn a doctorate from UGA.
At the Libraries, we are excited and honored for our facility to be chosen for this recognition. The legacy of Dr. McBay will live on through the STEM students we serve at the Shirley Mathis McBay Science Library.

Long before Joro spiders began spinning webs across the Georgia landscape, pests, from fire ants and the boll weevil to the kudzu vine, have bugged the state’s farmers, business owners, and residents.
Those pests, past and present, and the ways that scientists, government officials and others have battled them, will be highlighted in a new exhibit on display by the University of Georgia’s Russell Library for Political Research and Studies.
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.
