Open & Extended Access Resources

In response to record numbers of university and college closures, some database vendors and major publishers are temporarily making numerous scholarly resources open access to support virtual research. Below you will find databases we already subscribe to, with extended access and new resources made available temporarily.

To access any of the subscription databases listed you will need to go through the library website. When prompted login with your MyFSU and password.
