With the fall semester underway, the University of Florida Marston Science Library is running on a 24/5 schedule. The library will be open continuously from 10 a.m. Sunday through 10 p.m. Friday. Hours on Saturday are 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

With the fall semester underway, the University of Florida Marston Science Library is running on a 24/5 schedule. The library will be open continuously from 10 a.m. Sunday through 10 p.m. Friday. Hours on Saturday are 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

The extended hours are the result of a recent student survey. UF Student Government will fund the extended hours, as it did for the Library West overnight hours.

Printing, course reserves, study room reservations, the MADE@UF mobile app development lab and other resources are available whenever the library is open. Starbucks will stay open as well.

Recent renovations have brought new furniture, more outlets, better technology and an increased seating capacity of more than 2,000. For the adventurous, additional technologies include iPad 3D scanners, Arduino products, and Raspberry Pi computers. Printing and computers (including new dual monitors and Macs) are now managed by UF Information Technology; Marston computers offer the same software found in Academic Technology computer labs. To accommodate all students’ preferences, a variety of study environments are now available, including group study in the Collaboration Commons and silent individual study on the fifth floor.

“The UF Libraries are appreciative of Student Government’s continued partnership,” said Valrie Minson, chair of Marston Science Library. “We welcome feedback from students about the switch to Marston as it is our goal to provide the best study environment possible.”
