It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Nathan W. Collier Library and to the wide range of educational services, print, non-print and electronic resources provided by the Library. The Library web-site provides a brief profile of the services and resources available throughout the library.

One of the Library’s aims is to provide access to any information in any format. Through its Web-based electronic resources, E-Books, The Millennium OPAC, Encore and the inter-library loan program, the library provides access to research materials on a global level.

We provide access to the internet and various web-based electronic resources from terminals in the library or by remote access from any location on the Florida Memorial University network. The Library Staff strives to ensure that members of the University community have the necessary resources and materials for “meeting their information needs” at every level of their educational pursuit.
