A Message to the FSU Community from the ACRL Board of Directors

The ACRL Board of Directors, along with the entire academic community, was shocked and saddened by the news of the senseless act of violence that occurred early Thursday morning at the Florida State University (FSU) Strozier Library.

The Strozier Library, like academic libraries across the nation, represents the heart and soul of campus. The actions of the Strozier Library faculty and staff during, and following, these tragic events show the dedication of the academic library community to the personal, as well as intellectual, well-being of our students.

Many of our fellow ACRL members are affected both professionally and personally by the events at Strozier. Please know that those dealing with aftermath of this tragedy, including FSU students, staff, and faculty, are in our thoughts.
