Building Access and Closure policy:
A Hurricane Warning/High Wind Warning is declared when hurricane conditions are expected within 24 hours. Hurricane conditions include winds of 74 miles per hour (64 knots) or greater. When this condition is declared for the Gainesville area, the UF President or his designee may declare the University closed.
When the University is declared closed, all employees of the libraries will be instructed to leave the library facilities except those assigned protective duties in this plan.
Following completion of those protective duties, all employees must then leave the library facilities.
Personal safety should always take priority over preparations to prevent facility or equipment damage.
