Library Workshops

FSU Libraries is pleased to offer a variety of workshops to all FSU students, faculty, and staff. Online workshops are offered to meet the needs of off-campus users.

Open Access Resources

The FSU Faculty Senate adopted an open access policy on February 17, 2016, ensuring that future scholarly articles authored by FSU faculty will be made available to the public at no charge. This policy demonstrates the commitment of our faculty to disseminating the fruits of their research and scholarship as widely as possible, and promises to increase authors’ rights, readership, and citation rates. The waiver provision ensures that all faculty have the freedom to publish in the journal of their choice.
