Platform & Interface Changes

Changes on the horizon

There are a few platform and interface changes for a couple of the Libraries' research tools and sites.

find it @ FIU

Our "find it @ FIU" OpenURL link resolver now has a streamlined look and feel.  So, what's find it @ FIU?  Basically, when you perform a search in one of the library databases, such as Gale's Academic OneFile, you will at times see a button/link labeled "find It @FIU" next to each article citation, like this:

Now, when you click on this image/link, you'll automatically be sent out to try and get the fulltext you are you looking for and a sidebar with citation information and additional access options will appear on the right of your browser's window. 

LibGuides @ FIU & A-Z Databases & Resources

The Libraries' research guides and database pages you know and love are getting a facelift!  Librarians are hard at work updating your subject, course, and research guides for the Spring semester.  We're hoping you'll see improved navigability, ease of access, and a cleaner look and feel overall. 

Ask Us @ FIU Libraries

The Libraries' online chat and reference services platform is getting a facelift too!  Also starting in the Spring Semester, you'll see all new FAQ pages, chat boxes, and more!
