FSU Libraries Services Updates

As FSU kicks off summer sessions, FSU Libraries continue to update resources and services available to the campus community.

Here are a few notable updates: 

  • The stacks are open! Access to our physical collections in Strozier, Dirac, and the FAMU-FSU Engineering Library has resumed. 
  • Curbside and in-library pick-up services will also continue. 
  • HathiTrust Digital Library Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS) has ended. Click here to learn more. However, our extensive online resources are always available both on- and off-campus.
  • UBorrow has been suspended until mid-July due to the state-wide discovery system migration. To learn more about this upgrade and what it means for you, visit https://www.lib.fsu.edu/catalog-and-discovery-upgrades.
  • Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services for both electronic and print resources have resumed. However, there may be fulfillment delays due to library closures nationwide. Please contact lib-borrowing@fsu.edu with any questions.
  • Physical Course Reserves remain suspended until further notice. We anticipate offering physical reserves in the fall if quarantining returned print materials is no longer a necessity.
  • For updates on Special Collections & Archives, click here.

Library Tutoring is on Zoom

The Strozier Library Learning District late-night tutoring has moved online. Due to the recent closure of the FSU campus, we’re now on Zoom! The Learning District is still providing students tutoring on all the usual subjects and operating during our regularly scheduled times, but students can now ask us questions from their own living rooms.

Attention, Students! We’re still here to help!

What is Zoom?

Zoom is an online video conferencing application, and most FSU courses have switched to Zoom lectures and classes. This application also allows the Learning District tutors the chance to chat with students and help subjects in real time no matter where each person is located.

If you need assistance figuring out Zoom, start with this page of FSU’s Information Technology Services site or Zoom’s official help center.

How can I find FSU Zoom tutoring?

From the main tutoring home page, details on hours and how to connect to our tutors are on the Online Tutoring page. During active hours, you can also reach most of our tutors directly by visiting this page for the Zoom link.

What subjects are being tutoring?

The Learning District offers chemistry, math, and physics. We also have our Expanded Subjects tutoring which covers economics, English, and other humanities.

What time is tutoring?

Zoom tutoring for STEM subjects is available Sunday-Wednesday from 8:00 p.m. EST to midnight EST.

Other subjects may be available between 6:00 p.m. EST and midnight EST, Sunday through Thursday, but specific hours vary by tutor, so check the calendar on this page for details.
