Abstract: The UV instruments on Hubble have lead to massive shifts in our knowledge of how metals in the universe are distributed and the connection of gas to galaxies. Access to the ultraviolet wavelength regime has been critical to these efforts. However, our continued access to the ultraviolet, which is critical for at least low-redshift studies of metals, will soon fade (at least temporarily). I'll discuss potential priorities in studying metals and circumgalactic gas in the Universe in the last of the HST era. I'll also look ahead to what capabilities might best help elucidate the lifecycle of metals in a future LUVOIR era.
