FAU Libraries at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) supports faculty and student research through reference services, one-on-one consultations, classroom instruction, and workshops relevant to the research process.
The HBOI Librarian may provide specialized support for the University’s research, teaching, and publishing endeavors by conducting literature searches or comprehensive literature reviews for Harbor Branch faculty and research staff with specialized research instruction for HBOI students.
For best results, the librarian and the faculty member will meet in-person, online, or by telephone to discuss criteria for selecting relevant literature titles, including a time frame for selection and completion. An example search form can be found at
All requests for literature searches, reference assistance, or instruction should be made to the HBOI Librarian by email firstname.lastname@example.org , by phone 772-242-2486 or in person at the HBOI Library. (Link Bldg., first floor, room 108)
