Virtual Tour

5th Floor

Also see a floor map of the Fifth Floor.

The fifth floor continues the book collection from the previous level and also houses the Federal Government Documents Collection.

Handmade quilts, on display on the walls throughout the fifth floor, are from the collection of Wade Hall, who graciously contributed them to William T. Young Library.

Bridge to 5th floor reading room, Young Library

Bridges lead into the 78 feet tall fifth floor rotunda, which features a chandelier designed specifically for the William T. Young Library.

The chandelier, constructed of solid brass, weighs over 3,000 pounds. To showcase the scholarly achievements of the graduates of the University of Kentucky, the fifth floor rotunda contains theses and dissertations written by our alumni. Some of these materials date back to the early 1900s. Because archival copies of UK theses and dissertations are kept in Special Collections in the M.I. King Library, the copies in this rotunda can be checked out.

The west wing of the 5th floor contains the Thomas D. Clark Study Room (5-47), a quiet study area.


William T. Young Library houses a general undergraduate collection and social science, humanities, business, biology and agricultural materials. As the central library in the university library system, it also is home to the Dean's Office and a number of centralized library services and other university services.
