On any given day or night, The Nova Southeastern University (NSU) Alvin Sherman Library, Research, Information and Technology Center (ASLRITC) plays host to individuals and families, young and old. Many of them are NSU students, faculty and staff who use the library for studying, researching and gathering. Unlike most academic libraries, the Alvin Sherman Library is quite unique to South Florida and the country. The Alvin Sherman Library is also a community library providing anyone living, working or going to school in Broward County access to the majority of its
online and on site resources and services. As a result, more than 60% of those using our library services are from the public. They may be students from nearby colleges or public schools who know that Nova has a rich collection of resources or parents of small children who enjoy our library’s story times and programs. They may be seniors and adults interested in continuing their love of learning or seeking to retool their skills. They may be small businesses, community leaders or Broward County School teachers interested in resources that are only available through a university library. The Library serves many constituent groups with a wide range of interests and needs.
