USF Tampa Library Secrets

Hi, my name is Nancy Petty. I am a graduate student in the USF Library Science program and I also work at the USF Tampa Library in Access Services.  Today, I am going to reveal a secret retreat for graduate students located on the 6th floor of the USF Tampa Library.

The other day I met with Dave Davisson to be initiated into the realm of blogging and using WordPress. For my training, I suggested that we go up to the 6th floor of the library to use the computer workstations in the Faculty and Graduate Student Research Suite. “What,” and more importantly, “Where,” is that, Dave exclaimed!


“Well,” I replied, “it’s a quiet study area designated especially for use by grad students located in the lobby of the Faculty Research Suite on the 6th floor of the USF Tampa library.” “Just go to your left when you get off the elevator.” (BTW – walking up to the 6th floor adds an additional bonus of fitness for the otherwise sedentary library science graduate student lifestyle.)


“Just look at all this space we can use.”


“A perfect place to study and work on projects.”

“When is this area available?”

  • Monday thru Friday 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
  • Closed Weekends


One note of caution: be sure to bring a sweater or jacket!

And please, stop by the circulation desk when you come in – I love meeting you all!
