The Friends include individuals and organizations valuing the vital role of libraries in learning, teaching and research. The Friends support the FSU Libraries in their efforts to contribute to Florida State University’s stature as an outstanding research university. The Friends support the Libraries by heightening awareness of the Libraries’ resources, services and needs; by sponsoring programs that stimulate intellectual and cultural interchange; by providing financial support to enhance library resources and services; by supporting the fundraising efforts of the Libraries; and by fostering communication, through publicity as appropriate and through a website within the Florida State University Libraries’ website, helping to call attention to programs and events and including an archive of the Friends’ previous activities.
