About Us


The Florida Electronic Library (FEL) is a gateway to: electronic magazines, newspapers, almanacs, encyclopedias and books, and the Ask a Librarian reference service.

Over 17 million articles are downloaded each year
Floridians have access to more than 50 virtual reference titles.

The Florida Electronic Library Administrator works with the Florida Library Network Council (FLNC) to coordinate this process, and cost efficiently and cost effectively, license a collection of statewide core electronic resources.

The statewide purchase of databases saved Floridians over $170 million in 2013.

The FLNC, comprised of representatives from all types of libraries, acts as a steering committee for the planning and implementation of statewide library resource sharing programs.
