We hope you all had a fun summer and are ready to start a fast roll up the undulating hills of academia this year. The Macdonald-Kelce Library is here to help you through college, from Freshman to Graduate.
Here are some tips:
Bookmark utopia.ut.edu on your personal device. This is the front page of the library.
Sign into Esearch when looking for articles in the databases. Log in with your network username and password. Use the same password when signing into the campus computers and MyUTampa to get to Blackboard.
Visit the About the Libraryguide. This guide will answer most of your questions about library services (laptops, lockers, reserves, printing, etc.)
Find a librarian. Every department/college has a liaison librarian. If you need help with your research, stop by the reference desk or email a librarian. We are here to help you.
In case you haven’t heard by now, July 20th is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing! You know how it went: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Neil Armstrong couldn’t predict the future, but it turns out humanity has made a couple more leaps since then in the fields of science and technology. Where can you browse new books on these topics, you ask with great fervor? “The Library!” yell librarians into the dark cold atmospheric ether.
So stop by the library to learn more about this historic event from the displays and check out a book or two on recent astronautical expeditions. How about this one from 2017: Endurance : a year in space, a lifetime of discovery by astronaut Scott Kelly TL789.85.K45 A3 2017

The Center for Martí Studies Affiliate is a month long workshop on Cuban revolutionary José Martí and the interlocking histories of Cuba and Florida. The Macdonald-Kelce Library provides resources for attendees during the Summer Institute. Stop by and see the Martí/Cuba display, talk to a librarian, and use the José Martí research guide.
Tampa was and is a city of Cuban immigrants. Ybor City in particular, the site of José Martí Park, was a central local for the kindling of the Cuban independence movement at the turn of the twentieth century. Read more about this history by checking a book out of the library and going on a walking tour.

Alexandra “Alex” Ricciardiello was the lucky raffle winner of a UT gift basket, compliments of Macdonald-Kelce Library. The raffle was part of the Library’s observance of National Library Week (April 7-13). The annual celebration serves as an opportunity to raise awareness of the crucial role libraries play in engaging and empowering the people they serve, like Alex. Library Director Marlyn Pethe presented the freshman a basket filled with pens, pencils, markers, snacks, portable headphones, a USB drive, and plenty of UT paraphernalia. Congratulations, Alex!
