DigiNole, Florida State University's digital repository, provides online access to thousands of unique and historical materials, as well as the products of original research by the FSU community.

  • The Digital Library is an access portal to rare and unique materials held by University Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives and other FSU community members. New content is regularly added to the Digital Library’s collections.
  • The Research Repository is a hub for posting and sharing original scholarship and other research outputs created by the FSU community, including publications, data sets, presentations, and conference posters.

Our goal is to support scholarly engagement and resource discovery by providing a growing collection of diverse resources.

DigiNole is run on the FL-Islandora platform, managed by the Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC). Florida State University Libraries are a key technical partner on the development and enhancement of the project.Our Islandora Implementation/DigiNole Working Group has devoted significant resources to developing the system in addition to evaluating needs as the uses of the system evolve.

DigiNole supports and participates in the Open Archives Initiative (OAI). Metadata for DigiNole is available under a CC0 license and may be reused in non-commercial and commercial systems. For more information, please see the DigiNole Harvest Policy.

FSU maintains Imaging Guidelines and Metadata Guidelines for materials in both the Digital Library and the Research Repository.
