COMING SOON: New Library Website & GL 2nd Floor Technology & Research Hub

WEBSITE: The Library is getting a facelift!  Our website will be moving to a new and improved design in the Spring 2013 semester.  New sections to Quick Links, Popular Content, and collections or projects that are Unique @ FIU Libraries are prominently featured, while familiar links to Ask Us, Research Tools, Off Campus Access, and the Catalog remain. 

In addition to the new look and feel, the new design improves navigation to our services and resources, help pages, contact information, research guides, and other content.  You can preview the site at before it goes live.  Please feel free to offer any feedback or comments. 

THE HUB: In addition to the website refresh, the 2nd floor of the Green Library will also be undergoing a “redesign”!  Construction on a new Technology and Research Hub will begin Spring 2013, during which the area will be closed for renovations.  Computers and tables in the area will be relocated throughout the library during the construction and renovation period.  The area is expected to reopen Summer 2013.

The Hub at Green Library will be providing: increased access to computers in an “open lab” setting, increased access to electrical outlets for laptops/other devices, multimedia conversion and creation stations, a special device/laptop check out and support area, a centralized printing/copying/scanning area, and a streamlined collection of Reference and Curriculum materials!  Stay tuned to the library blog at for updates on the space and other announcements.
