About DigiNole

DigiNole, the digital repository of Florida State University, provides online access to thousands of unique and historical materials, as well as the products of original research by the FSU community.

  • The Digital Library is an access portal to rare and unique materials held by University Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives and other FSU and regional community members. New content is regularly added to the Digital Library’s collections.
