Smathers Library is adjacent to Library West on the north edge of campus off W. University Avenue (Library West has a 3 story glass wall and a large sign facing West University Avenue). Smathers Library (aka Library East) is joined to Library West by a covered walkway and is where you'll find the Special and Area Studies Collections research room on the second floor. Mailing address: Department of Special & Area Studies Collections; P.O. Box 117005; 208 Smathers Library; University of Florida; Gainesville, FL 32611-7005; Telephone: (352) 273-2755. The physical address is 1508 Union Rd., but that's generally not helpful. The building is on W. University Ave. just west of the intersection with US 441/SW 13th St. on the northeast corner of campus. There is a Visitors & Guests page for the Libraries at: with a link to the interactive campus map and a good set of directions for visitors with a helpful sketch map at
