Electronic Resources Update

Through a statewide initiative that launched July 13, 2021, all libraries within Florida public universities and colleges, including the FAU Libraries, upgraded their online discovery platforms to an integrated, centralized system known as Alma and Primo VE, providing FAU students, staff, and faculty with enhanced access to library collections at FAU and at public universities and colleges statewide.

As with any new system migration, ensuring seamless access to library collections is our top priority, and requires a significant amount of time and effort.  During the current post-migration phase, we at the FAU Libraries are vigorously working to troubleshoot access to content issues that arise, and we ask that patrons alert us to problems they experience at eresources@fau.edu so that we can prioritize those instances for repair.  If we experience a delay in repair, it’s likely because we sometimes have to rely on third parties to resolve the problem.  Nevertheless, we often can provide direct links and permanent links (“permalinks”) as a temporary solution while troubleshooting is underway.

For more details and FAQs about the new platform, please visit the FAU Libraries’ Next-Generation Library System webpage.
