DigiNole Migration

FSU Libraries is working on a project to host DigiNole: FSU’s Digital Repository which holds both FSU's Research Repository and Digital Library. We are making good progress and are on track to have our new system up and running by July 15th, 2021. We look forward to an updated system that will include a more robust search, intuitive navigation, and faster response time.

The repository interface will look different, but the following will stay the same:
  • All collections and objects along with their metadata will not change.
  • The views and downloads counts for current records will not change and will continue to accumulate on the new system.
  • Embargoes on the current system will carry over to the new platform and will not change.
  • We are working to ensure that all records contain direct links.
If you have more specific questions, they may be addressed in the Frequently Asked Questions section below. If your question remains unanswered, please contact lib-support@fsu.edu.

 

FAQ

   Will services be interrupted?

We do not currently anticipate service interruption, however we will update this page as events unfold.

   Will new materials be made available publicly during the migration period?

New materials will be loaded and made available in DigiNole as long as we can do so without causing potential confusion or delays with the migration process. Please contact lib-support@fsu.edu for questions regarding new materials.

   I am looking for a thesis/ dissertation/ article. Can I still find it in DigiNole?

Content in the repository is still searchable.

   Will I be able to access repository articles during the migration?

Yes.

   How will the migration affect my 2021 electronic thesis or dissertation?

All theses and dissertations are first submitted to Proquest, and this process will not be affected. Typically, Proquest sends us the theses and dissertations three months after the student's degree is awarded, so we receive them in batches. There might be a slightly longer delay in the work being available through DigiNole as we prepare for the migration, but it will have no effect on degrees awarded or graduation requirements.

   How will the migration affect my 2021 honors thesis submission?

Submit your thesis as normal. It may take a little longer than usual to be uploaded.

   I have a grant that requires me to deposit to a repository? Can I submit to DigiNole and when?

Yes, you can. Please submit your materials through the submission form and include the grant number when filling out the form (there will be a place for it), and if you have any questions or need assistance please contact lib-support@fsu.edu.

   My thesis is not found in DigiNole. How do I request the work be digitized and uploaded to DigiNole?

You may request digitization by filling out and submitting the Special Collections & Archives Reproduction Form. Keep an eye on the form for updates regarding digitization turnaround times.
