The Green Library and Hubert Library represent the physical and metaphorical hearts of their respective campuses at MMC and BBC. Uniquely positioned at the intersection of information, technology, and innovation, the FIU Libraries engage with local and global partners to foster student-centered learning and to support internationally recognized research.
The FIU Libraries are open over 110 hours per week and see more than 180,000 visits a month. Embodying the very best attributes of teaching, learning, and service, our librarians and staff love to answer questions on books, journal articles, and other information resources as they strive to empower students and help them become discerning and analytical researchers, especially in an age of information overload. As such, the Libraries invest heavily in content in all formats: print, digital text, and other media, such as streaming video. The FIU Libraries hold nearly two million print volumes, provide print or digital access to over 100,000 journals, magazines, and newspapers, and offer use of over a thousand databases, ranging from European legal statutes to fictional characters.
As FIU moves toward more hybrid and online course offerings, the FIU Libraries have shifted purchasing towards a greater focus on e-books and digital subscriptions. The vast majority of this digital content is not available in free web search engines such as Google, but the investments made by the FIU Libraries ensure that our students, faculty, and staff have continuous access to high quality research materials and data anytime, anywhere.
The FIU Libraries also provide many other services to help you succeed. Need a place to work on that paper or finish that group project?
