Research Support

Supporting the research of faculty and students is one of the top priorities at the FSU Libraries. Below is a summary of some of the tools and services we provide to help you connect you with the resources and information you need.


UBORROW allows you to request materials directly from participating libraries within Florida’s state university system. This borrowing service increases your access to the collections of the other universities in Florida and delivers more quickly than standard Interlibrary Loan.
