Printing

The library's printer and copier may only be used by College of Medicine students faculty and staff for reproducing library resources. Any other printing or copying (class assignments, notes, slides, etc.) should be done in student communities or departments.

Students and faculty visiting from Regional Medical Campuses will be given permission to print in the library.

Color printing is not available in the library. 

Learn more about printing at the College of Medicine from the Office of Information Technology's IT Help Series video.

For other on-campus printing options, please see Office of Business Services, Student Printing.

Collection Development & Donation Policy

Due to the community-based model of clinical education used by the Florida State University College of Medicine, preference is given to online resources that can be accessed by medical students and clinical faculty located at both the Tallahassee main campus and at the regional campuses. We do not accept print books as donations except in special circumstances. All donation inquiries can be directed to Robyn Rosasco. For more information:
