FSU Libraries launches upgraded DigiNole interface

FSU Libraries has launched a new, upgraded interface for DigiNole, the digital repository of Florida State University, giving users an enhanced presentation of digitized materials, faster response times for browsing, searching, and viewing, better interaction with search results and more responsiveness for mobile devices.

“The improved infrastructure and interface for DigiNole greatly improves access and usability,” said Katie McCormick, associate dean for Special Collections and Archives. “We’re excited to better connect students, faculty and researchers with our digital resources.”

DigiNole is home to Florida State University’s Digital Library and Research Repository. The Digital Library provides online access to thousands of unique manuscripts, photographs, pamphlets, rare books, historic maps and other materials from across the FSU campus and FSU Libraries’ community partners. The Research Repository provides access to Theses and Dissertations, faculty and student research, reports and open textbooks.

DigiNole supports scholarly engagement and resource discovery by providing a growing collection of diverse resources that are accessible to everyone. It provides support for preserving and managing digital materials and publishing niche materials, many of which are unique to FSU. Members of the university community are also able to submit their research and scholarly work to the Research Repository to become available to others.

FSU faculty, staff, students and postdocs are invited to submit research outputs such as articles, book chapters, 3D objects, reports and posters to the Research Repository to make them publicly available at no cost to the author. Library employees are available to assist in compliance with copyright, publisher policies and FSU’s open access policy.

A few highlights featured in DigiNole include an illuminated leaf from the original edition of the 42-line Gutenberg Bible, a new Civil and Humans Rights Materials collection, the Theses and Dissertations collection, the Open Textbooks collection, and one of the top viewed items in the entire repository, Paul M. Dirac’s Ph.D. dissertation.
