A classic college scene for many involves students, being surrounded by piles of books, and studying in the campus library. A haven for researchers, the library is almost a holy space on campus – filled with information and knowledge. However, the modern library looks very different. Filled with technology, Internet access, and almost limitless information, the collegiate libraries of today are the heart of a university.
Florida National University
Florida National University, a regionally accredited and prestigious South Florida University, offers Certificate, Associates, Bachelor’s, and MBA programs in the most competitive and high-demand fields. FNU has both traditional classes and a host of degrees that are offered entirely online. The online classes allow FNU to provide superior higher education to people all over the world and in all walks of life. The flexibility in scheduling allows students to attend school, even if they have full time jobs, live remotely, or have responsibilities that make them unable to attend on site classes.
FNU understands that access to information is the key to progress. A school library is a student’s “all access pass” to the information they need.

Almost all of FNU’s library content can be accessed online through multiple databases, which are constantly updated with the most recent information and research.
