Accessibility at FSU Libraries

Florida State University Libraries is committed to providing an inclusive and accessible experience to all library users.

Materials & Services

FSU Libraries strives to provide equal access to resources and services through provision of reasonable accommodations for students, staff, and faculty with disabilities. While many accommodations are unique to an individual’s needs, all library staff can provide basic assistance. Students are required to schedule an appointment for accommodations that require more individualized assistance.

Some standard services we provide include:

  • Assistance with location and retrieval of materials
  • Assistance using microform and audiovisual equipment
  • Reference assistance
  • Photocopying assistance
  • Mobility designated assistants

  Alternate Formats

Library materials can be converted to accessible digital formats by request. This includes book chapters, journal articles, library publications, and library instructional materials.


     Electronic Resources

Many materials in the library already exist in electronic versions. Search the library catalog to access our vast electronic resource collection. 


  Hathitrust Digital Library

In addition to materials and resources owned by Florida State University, eligible patrons with print disabilities can receive special access to in-copyright materials through HathiTrust Digital Library. For more information about access, contact Sean Hogan at shogan@fsu.edu.

HathiTrust is a partnership of libraries and research institutions that have come together to build and share a digital repository of print works. Begun in 2008, the goal of the partnership is to both preserve and provide access to print works. The HathiTrust has pursued this goal chiefly by digitizing materials like books and journals from library collections and making them available in the HathiTrust Digital Library. Access the HathiTrust Libguide for more information.
