Owens Library, named in honor of the founder of the landscape architecture program at the University of Georgia, Hubert Bond Owens, is open to the public weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the academic year and posted hours during the summer.
In addition to current journals and cataloged books, Owens Library contains various donated collections of materials reflective of CE+D endeavors. These include photographs, plans, drawings, videos, and rare books that are not in circulation. Their collection of plans and reports includes towns from Georgia to as well as locations in other countries.
This collection is supported by the College of Environment and Design, donations, and support from our patrons and is a combination of books, journals, theses and senior projects. There are over 7000 items in the circulating collection. Owens Library works in conjunction with the university’s Main Library in that our books are cataloged within its system: http://www.libs.uga.edu/.
