FAU and Palm Beach State College students, staff, and faculty may place Interlibrary Loan requests for physical materials as well as electronically-delivered book chapters and articles.
The Interlibrary Loan office will continue to offer the low-contact delivery system for both ILL's and UBorrows on the Boca Campus. For UBorrow requests, please choose Locker Pickup - BOCA ONLY as your pickup location when you place the request. For ILL requests, you will need to update your user information on your ILL Account by changing your FAU campus delivery location to Boca Locker Pickup.
