Welcome to the Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center, one of the largest library buildings in the state of Florida.
The Alvin Sherman Library is a unique joint-use facility serving the residents of Broward County as well as NSU students, faculty, and staff members. Thanks to an agreement between the Broward County Board of County Commissioners and NSU, the Alvin Sherman Library offers traditional public library services as well as the full academic resources of one of the nation's major independent universities. This library was opened to the public on December 8, 2001.
Standing five stories high with wireless access throughout the building, cozy reading niches, study rooms, and a café, the library environment is spacious, high tech, yet friendly. You will discover collections of research materials, specialized databases, popular fiction and nonfiction books, magazines and journals, CDs, DVDs, special programs for children, teens, and adults, book discussion groups, author readings, and classes on using research tools and resources. Most importantly, you will find a professional library staff attuned and ready to serve your needs.
