BRADENTON: Group study rooms are available for student use. Usage is "first come first served", however priority is given to student groups, disabled students and students that need to view DVD & VHS materials.

There is one study room [Study Room H] equipped with a Mac computer intended for presentation production (Bradenton). Please call the Circulation Desk if you have questions.
VENICE: For students only to reserve on a “first come, first serve” basis. The Venice Campus does have two rooms that students may come in person to reserve a room by writing their name down on a clipboard on the door in a time slot (there are clipboards on rooms 319 and 321).

How do I Link to FMG in CANVAS?
One of our most useful resources, Films on Demand, offers over 22 thousand shows and videos online.
In this short video (about 6 minutes) we'll show you how you can get these resources directly in your courses. Do not use the embed or link provided in FMG. Use this shortcut instead.
