Occasionally, the Macdonald-Kelce Library is able to offer temporary access to research databases. This provides students, faculty, staff, and librarians a trial period to review them for possible acquisition. University of Tampa patrons will have temporary access from campus to these database trials.
Current Database Trials
Access to trial databases is restricted to users that are on campus, unless otherwise noted.
The original University of Tampa Library was housed in Fletcher Lounge in historic Plant Hall from 1933 until 1969.
The Merl Kelce Library at The University of Tampa opened October 19, 1969, and was named for the late St. Louis industrialist, Mr. Merl Kelce. His donation of $250,000 to the UT Building Fund made completion of the facility possible.
It was re-named the Macdonald-Kelce Library in 1999.
