please read: new way to log  in to your ill accounts

FAU students, faculty, and staff are now able to log into their ILL Accounts with their FAUNet ID and password through the Secure Single Sign-ON portal. This will improve the security of those logins and bring the system in line with campus security expectations.

In some cases, such as if your ILLiad username was not your FAU email, a new account will be created when you log in for the first time. You will be asked to verify and update any account details including address and department. After this, the old account will be merged with the new one. The merging must be done manually, so there may be a slight delay - but you will be able to submit new requests in the meantime.
