The Electronic Resources Department within the University's Libraries is responsible for acquiring, maintaining, and providing access to the library's online materials. Our services include providing and troubleshooting access to electronic resources. This LibGuide is dedicated to explaining what the Electronic Resources department offers as well as providing a resource on troubleshooting e-resource access issues. Faculty and staff at FSU Libraries can visit our department's wiki here for more information about us!
What do we offer?
Our department offers over 1 million electronic resources that we have obtained from over 200 vendors. Each year we renew subscriptions as well as purchase content to allow access to resources such as e-books, articles, peer-reviewed journals, streaming videos, newspapers, and more! Some of our resources are also provided by FALSC/FLVC as well as FEL (Florida Electronic Library). View the FLVC Statewide E-Resources here. We are always updating our holdings so that faculty, staff, and students can have content that is relevant to their interests, needs, and research.
How do I use these resources?
The most basic way to search or browse our holdings is through a database search. Begin your search on the library website. You can also find a list of our licensed databases on our Databases A-Z list.
