Macdonald-Kelce Library Digital Collections

The University of Tampa's library opened Oct. 19, 1969, and was originally named in honor of the late St. Louis industrialist, Merl Kelce, whose donation made the construction possible. It was re-named the Macdonald-Kelce Library in 1999 because of the generosity of the Macdonald Family Foundation whose contribution will transform the facility into a state-of-the-art institution. The Macdonald-Kelce Library Special Collections houses UT publications and memorabilia, University papers, photograph collections, rare books, and local history manuscripts.
