We would like to thank Phoebe Carpenter for her generous support of the UCF Libraries. Her gift, named for her son John, a Shakespeare scholar and English professor, provides resources that help UCF and BCC students with academic projects. The Carpenter collection will continue to have a positive impact for UCF and BCC students who utilize the BCC/UCF Joint-Use Library in the future.
