Locating Materials: Price Library materials can be located by consulting the Libraries’ catalogs. Microform and microfilm resources supporting Jewish studies are primarily housed in the microfilm area of the 3rd floor of Library West. Scarce and rare books of Hebraica and Judaica are likewise discoverable through the Libraries catalogs. These non-circulating materials are mostly housed in the Judaica Suite, and they may be consulted in the Grand Reading Room located on the second floor of the Smathers Library building. Special Collections (archives and manuscripts) can be discovered through our finding aids. Please email special@uflib.ufl.edu for access information.

Copying Services: Information about copying, printing, and scanning Judaica Library books held in Library West can be found on the George A. Smathers Libraries website.
