The library staff welcomes students, faculty, staff and visitors to use our facilities and services. We have online periodical databases accessible through the library webpage, and therefore available on campus through IP recognition. Some databases are even available off campus with a password. We have computers available, Wi-Fi signal for laptops, and many other valuable resources.
We are open six days during the academic year, Sunday to Friday, and from Monday to Friday during the summer sessions. All students and faculty have full privileges for borrowing library materials, using electronic databases and requesting interlibrary loan materials.
We are happy to serve our patrons, and look forward to assisting you with your research needs and requests for leisure reading and viewing. At the beginning of the fall semester in 2011 the new library was opened to the campus community with improved services including individual and group study rooms, audiovisual rooms, a 24 hour study room close to the library entrance, and increased study space for students and for all of our collections allowing for growth during years to come.
Mrs. Elizabeth Garcia

Faculty and Staff:
The faculty and staff of the university have access to all library services.
Visitors to the campus have access to the library, and can use materials in the library. Photocopy services are available. Students, faculty and staff have priority for computer services, and therefore, these are usually not available for visitors, unless special arrangements have been made with the library director. Residents of the area can request borrowing privileges with “special patron” status.
The Henry H. Howard & Gertrude L. Bagley Library is open for student and faculty use six days a week during the academic year, and is also open on a reduced schedule during the summer sessions. All students and faculty have full privileges for borrowing library materials, using computer databases, and requesting interlibrary loan materials.
The collections consist of books, hardcopy periodicals, full-text periodicals in online databases, Internet, videos and other educational materials. Library users can print from computers and there are photocopy services in the library building. The building has Wi-Fi for the use of laptops and other mobile devices. The new building offers many new services including group and individual study rooms, a 24-hour study room, a quiet study room, a video viewing room, a conference room and expanded space for the growing collections.
The library constitutes an important part of the academic life of the campus. Most of the library collection is in English, since that is the language of instruction. However the Latin American Collection consists of English and Spanish language materials on Latin American subjects. There is also an extensive collection of bound Nicaraguan newspapers in Spanish, most of which is unavailable through online services. Due to the importance of some of these collections, they are also available for use by visiting scholars.

My instructors believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. Student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. Everyone was dedicated to my overall success.
Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.
The instructors at Keiser University impacted my life. They believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. KU helped to prepare me for the real world and got me to where I am today.
Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.
If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.
The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.
The year and a half I spent in the program better prepared me for attaining a job in the field…As a hands-on learner, the project-centered teaching was perfect for me.
Keiser University has given me the opportunity to embrace a career change… It has opened the door for a timely graduation and quick return to the work force…
Without the education I received at Keiser University, I would not be where I am today!
I not only received an excellent education but also encouragement and training that built my self-confidence every day.
I realize the amount of knowledge I gained and feel that the educational experiences have developed me in to a person who can move higher up the career ladder.
Keiser University’s MBA program has renewed my mind, changed the way I think, and given me a new sense of purpose. The professors transformed my attitude and behavior, gave me the self-confidence I was lacking, and restored my energy.
It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University. Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors. The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.
Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made. The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly. The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.
I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you. I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.
After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education. Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.
Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.
My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.
The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.
I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
