WINTER BREAK IS COMING!
The ILL office will be closing on Dec. 21, 2018 and reopening on Jan 2, 2019.
For the best chance to have your materials before the winter break, we suggest you place orders for books by Dec. 5 and for articles/book chapters by Dec. 14. Please return or renew materials by Dec. 16 and pickup incoming materials by Dec. 23.
Use Interlibrary Loan services to:
- Retrieve FAU Materials from other campuses
- Request materials from other State University Libraries via UBorrow
- Request Articles and Book Chapters
- Request loan of items not owned by FAU
- Distance Learners can have both FAU materials and ILL loans shipped directly to their location
How much money have I saved by using Interlibrary Loan?
So far this year, the ILL Department has saved the FAU Community an estimated $90,263!
