Everything we do at the library is to support student success. To help you get the resources you need without ever setting your foot in the library. To help you with your assignments. To make you’re experience at FSU experience better. Whatever is available to students on campus is available to students who are off campus.
Our library is an academic library and is different than a public library (the way we organize books, the types of books and journals that are available are suited for your assignments.) So instead of going to the public library – come to us for your academic assignments. Not that public libraries don’t have great resources as well.The library is a quiet place to study. We have areas for group study. We are open 7 days a week during the semester; most nights till 1:00am. The café will be open. We have computers available to use and provide wireless access. So even if you are taking an online class, you are able to use all of the resources on campus.Librarians want to help! Ask us anything. Weanswer questions on how to start your research paper, what are the best sources to use, how to cite your sources. Reach us by phone, email, IM, or text. Use our subject research guides. We have worked w/ your professors before so we are familiar with their assignments.
The online library: request books from other libraries, find our hours, contact us, find help through our research guides. Go to framingham.edu search for library. So bookmark this url. We also have links to the website through Blackboard and my.framingham.
