HISTORICAL COLLECTIONS LIBRARY

A Building Program for Floyd Hall

Historical Collections Library: Floyd Hall

Introduction to Program


My proposal for the adaptive use of Floyd Hall is a library to

house the historical collections owned by the University of Florida,

namely, the Rare Books Collection (RBC), the P.K. Yonge Library of

Florida History (PKY), and the University of Florida Archives (UFA).

Floyd Hall is an excellent site for a library. First, it is close

to the main library, therefore the historical collections, which have

"autgrowi' their space there, could be transferred to Floyd Hall and

still be easily accessible to the main library patrons. Also, it and

the main library buildings, Library East and Library West, all face

the Plaza of the Americas which, if expansion were to continue, might

well become Plaza of the Libraries. Finally, the Collegiate Gothic

character of Floyd Hall is appropriate for a university library, par-

ticularly for one specializing in rare and historical books.

Introduction to Program (continued)


Besides being related thematically, the RBC, PKY, and-UFA have

much in common:

As each collection has books and manuscripts dating back hundreds
of years, each needs a stable climate of 70 F and 50% relative
humidity; having the collections together would facilitate climate
control, particularly in the stacks.

They share a common need for security because of the value and
irreplaceability of their collections.

By housing the collections within the same building, they could
share expensive equipment such as microphotographers and copiers.

By becoming familiar with each others collection, they could share
information and avoid unnecessary duplication.

Finally, they share a need for more space. The program as outlined
would increase their overall area by 40% and their overall stack
area by 30% (greatly needed).
