University of Central Florida, John C. Hitt Library

The phased renovation and expansion of this this 1967 facility provides an opportunity to reorganize interior spaces to create a 21st century environment for research, study, collaborative work, and interaction with library collections and resources. A new Automated Retrieval Center (ARC) will enable instant access to a 1.5 million volume collection and allow existing stack space to be re-purposed for a 24-hour study commons, graduate student spaces, technology-rich group study rooms, instructional spaces, and significantly more user seating. Atop the ARC, a new reading room will provide unmatched views of the campus.
