UWF Libraries


The University of West Florida Libraries include the John C. Pace Library and the Professional Studies Library on the Pensacola location, and the Fort Walton Beach Location Library on the Fort Walton Beach location. Through the libraries’ internet-based home page, library.uwf.edu, students at all locations have access to the catalog of materials held by all UWF libraries, to a multitude of electronic reference databases and indexes, and to full-text journal articles and books. For those materials not held locally or electronically, students may request an interlibrary loan. Professional librarians are available at all locations to assist students in the effective use of materials, the computerized library system, and with retrieving materials through intercampus or interlibrary loan.
