Thanks to the generosity of Florida Atlantic University students, faculty and staff, our textbook reserves collection has grown! We now have textbooks for over 400 classes at FAU that can be checked out with an Owl Card.
If you've never used course reserves, it is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
- Check to see if we have the materials available for your class by visiting library.fau.edu or stopping by the service desk
- Using your Owl Card, all textbooks must be checked out at the Library Service desk
- Textbooks can only be used within the library and borrowed for two hours at a time. If you need to study longer, the books can be renewed in person.
If you don't find your textbook, consider asking your instructor if he/she would be willing to place a copy on reserve.
Our Textbook Reserves program was launched to help cut the costs of required course materials for all FAU students. The Libraries are always accepting donations, and textbooks can be brought to the Service Desk, located next at the main entrance of Wimberly Lobby.
