The Automated Retrieval Center (ARC) is part of a multi-year project of library expansion and renovation. The next phase of construction is expected to be completed in fall 2020 to expand the existing library building and connect it to the ARC, creating a new entrance facing the Student Union. All of the books and journals in the back portion of the library have been moved into the ARC to clear the way for this construction. [More information]
From November 2018 forward a request for items stored in the ARC is initiated by any UCF user directly from the online library catalog and will be available for pick-up from the John C. Hitt Library's book checkout desk near the current entrance of the library. Timeframes for delivery of items will be determined once the system is fully operational.
After construction is completed on the new entrance to the library on the Student Union side of the building in fall 2020 items requested from the ARC will be available at the new book checkout desk. Timeframes for delivery of items will be determined once the system is fully operational.
