University Libraries impact every University constituent, whether undergraduate or graduate student, faculty or visiting scholar. We support and enhance intellectual discovery.
The Heritage Museum
The Heritage Museum, located in the Werkmeister Room of Dodd Hall, is the public face for FSU’s rich history. It is where students, alumni, families, and community members can go to be immersed in FSU’s story. Additional funding will allow the Museum to be open more often, offer longer hours, more exhibits, update exhibits, install a professional sound system, lighting, and safe display of valuable objects. A gift to the Heritage Museum Fund is a gift to preserve and protect FSU's history.
