How To Access Materials During McBay Library 4th Floor Renovation

Submitted by Camie on

A renovation of the fourth floor of UGA’s McBay Science Library will replace the original 1968 climate control and lighting systems and improve study space for our students.

While the project requires temporary relocation of fourth-floor materials, our priority throughout will be to ensure that the University community can access the scholarly resources they need in a timely manner, either through digital access or print retrieval.

The project affects print material in the following subject areas: natural history, biology, ecology, botany, zoology, human anatomy, physiology, microbiology, medicine, pathology, pharmacology, pharmacy, agriculture, forestry, and veterinary medicine.

A large portion of the affected print materials are available digitally through UGA Libraries’ online offerings. Members of the UGA community can access full-text articles at or through browser extensions that provide UGA Libraries access directly to a number of databases. 

For items available only in print, faculty, students, and staff may submit a request through the online catalog, and the item will be delivered to the circulation desk at the Libraries location of the requestor’s choice, including the McBay Library. 

We understand the importance of these resources to your academic pursuits and assure you that we will make every effort to maintain their accessibility throughout the project.  

If you have any questions about accessing Libraries resources, please consider reaching out to the subject specialist librarian for your academic unit or take advantage of the online chat with a librarian feature on our website
