Assignment Design & Consultation
Library staff are excited to partner with course instructors and lend their instructional design expertise in order to create and meet research-related learning outcomes that support the curriculum. Library instructors can assist in the development of student-centered active learning content and alternative assessment measures to ensure that learners are gaining critical thinking and research skills aligned with course objectives. Reach out to Instruction Librarian, Liz Dunne, to begin the assignment design process.

Tours, Orientations, Visits
Due to the current closure of FSU Libraries in the wake of COVID-19, we have directed our tours and orientations to online formats. For a look at our physical spaces, visitors can access our 360° tour taken before the library’s temporary closure.
FSU Libraries welcomes student, research, and public groups to visit our physical spaces and explore our resources! Tours are designed to meet the specific needs of individual groups and typically include walkthroughs of library facilities and highlight key library services.
To schedule a tour, FSU course instructors can reach out to their subject librarian. Public groups looking to schedule a general tour of Strozier library can contact Preethi Gorecki, the Student Engagement Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visiting groups looking to tour libraries aside from Strozier can select the library they are looking to visit from our FSU Libraries page and contact those libraries directly.
