Each platform page contains a short description of the platform, a visual guide to accessing the features of each platform, information on personal accounts and usage restrictions, and links to support material from the platform.
See below for current news and known issues.

The Blackwell Reference Online platform is being shut down on July 25, 2018. As a result, the Blackwell Encyclopedia of Sociology, FSU's sole resource on that platform, is migrating to the Wiley Online Library platform. After July 25, please change all links to the Blackwell Encyclopedia of Sociology homepage to https://login.proxy.lib.fsu.edu/login?url=https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/book/10.1002/9781405165518 to ensure uninterrupted access.
The new platform is currently experiencing some technical difficulties. Currently, the site indicates full text access for all e-books; full text downloads are available only for titles purchased by FSU. Please be patient as we work to resolve this issue.
While links to the old Wiley Online Library site will continue to work through redirects, please update all of your links to Wiley Online Library content. More information about linking can be found here; the new URLs are available on the Libraries URL Crosswalk spreadsheet on the Wiley Online Library platform migration information page.
