UBorrow

UBorrow allows you to request materials directly from participating libraries within Florida’s state university and college systems. This unmediated borrowing service increases your access to the collections of the other universities and colleges in Florida and delivers more quickly than standard Interlibrary Loan.

InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

If your materials are not available through UBorrow, you can request them through the InterLIbrary Loan system. Log in to ILLiad to request articles, books, and more from libraries around the world..

Library Express Delivery Service (LEDS)

We deliver library materials for current FSU faculty members, staff, post-docs, and graduate assistants with appointments (i.e., graduate assistants, research assistants and teaching assistants). Available items are delivered to department offices within 48 hours. Scanned articles and book chapters are delivered by email.

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.

DigiNole: Research Respository

FSU Libraries' Academic Publishing Team works with members of the FSU community to curate, archive, and provide access to a diverse range of materials related to the missions of scholarship, research, and education at FSU. The repository showcases the work of individuals, departments, institutes, colleges, and other communities of researchers on campus.

FSU Libraries provide this service free of charge, and we are actively looking for ways to improve it based on the changing publishing needs of our users. We value your feedback, so contact us with your feedback and recommendations.

You can Search and Browse the Repository or Submit Work to the repository online.
