The University of Florida is a comprehensive learning institution built on a land grant foundation. We are The Gator Nation, a diverse community dedicated to excellence in education and research and shaping a better future for Florida, the nation and the world.

The mission of the University of Florida is to enable our students to lead and influence the next generation and beyond for economic, cultural and societal benefit.

To support the University's mission the George A. Smathers Libraries Human Resources Office promotes and encourages a work environment recognized for the respect and dignity shown toward all staff. This is accomplished by successfully recruiting and retaining staff that appreciate the goals and objectives of the library; creating a training program committed to continuing education and staff development; establishing performance objectives responsive to department needs and challenging to employee skills; providing confidential employee and career counseling that maximizes utilization of skills; and cordially overseeing the completion of personnel related paperwork which affects an individual's employment status.

Inclusion and Intellectual Freedom


Inclusion Statement:

The George A. Smathers Libraries support intellectual freedom, freedom of speech and the open exchange of ideas and opinions that support the community building, learning and research efforts of the University of Florida. The Libraries welcome all members of our community, regardless of their race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, veteran status, ancestry, national or ethnic origin, or citizenship status.



Intellectual Freedom Statement:

The Libraries are committed to protecting and advancing intellectual freedom, as an important set of rights. Intellectual freedom includes the right to access the widest diversity of views and expressions, including those that are unorthodox, unpopular, or considered dangerous. When intellectual freedom exists, these views and expressions are accessible without the necessity of endorsement by other individuals, groups or institutions, and without the imposition of political, moral, or aesthetic views of another individual, group or institution. Intellectual freedom includes the right to free expression, where an individual or group may fully engage in the quality and diversity of thought and expression, and develop their own views and expressions without being coerced and/or inhibited. The right to privacy is essential for intellectual freedom.
