Library Wifi Update

Hey Hatters,

If you experienced some wifi issues in the recent past, we wanted to let you know your complaints and suffering were not in vain!

IT is conducting an assessment of all the access points and other hardware necessary to provide a good wireless signal throughout the library. We’re hopeful that the issues will be fixed soon and will keep you updated.

In the meantime, keep the communication flowing. We want to know how you’re doing and what you think!

The Library Faculty & Staff

Proxy borrowing for students

Students who are isolating may borrow physical library materials by designating proxies who are authorized to check out items for them. Fill out this online form to designate your proxies, and they will be able to pick up items from the library and bring them to you. If you need to borrow a laptop, tablet, or other equipment, be sure to fill out an Equipment Loan Agreement form in addition to the proxy form. 

If you need research help while isolating, email [email protected] or call/text 386-747-9028. For more details, see Ask A Librarian.

24 hour library access online: Use OneSearch to locate ebooks, articles, and streaming media. Access all of the library’s databases and electronic resources from the library’s home page.

Library Building to Close Monday, March 23, 8:00pm

Stetson Community:

The university continues to follow the guidance coming from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Department of Health. On Friday, the university made changes to food services following the governor’s order to end in-house food service. As a result, students are now limited to take-out and pick-up services. Following recent restrictions on libraries throughout Florida, for the health and safety of our community, the duPont-Ball Library will be moving to virtual services effective Monday, March 23, at 8:00 pm.  The Library doors will close as of today, at 8 p.m., Monday, March 23. This is a difficult decision for us and we look forward to the day when we open our doors to you again.

We plan to continue to support students, faculty and staff by offering library services:
