Dear Friends of the Library,

Our dedicated staff of 21 librarians, managers, and paraprofessionals serves not only the students and faculty of USF St. Petersburg but also all students and faculty of the USF System, as well as the citizens of the city, the Tampa Bay area, and the State of Florida.

We pride ourselves on delivering excellent service to all USFSP students, whether they be first-time university students from Florida, mature students returning to school after military service, differently-abled students who need specialized attention or equipment to enable them to succeed, senior auditors of USFSP classes, or students from other cultures. We strive to keep our collections and services up-to-date to support the new courses and programs offered by USF St. Petersburg. We provide leadership in the creation and delivery of distance education courses for USFSP; we host the USFSP Digital Archive; we deliver for-credit courses in information literacy; we continue to reach out to our local community to build innovative partnerships and explore grant opportunities; and much more!
