uborrow service temporarily suspended

Beginning May 1, 2021, UBorrow requests and renewals throughout the state of Florida will be temporarily suspended due to a statewide integrated library system migration.

All UBorrow material will be due by June 30, 2021. Please return your UBorrow material accordingly.

We will happily fulfill your Interlibrary Loan needs via ILLiad. We thank you for your understanding and patience during the integrated library system migration. Please contact us at lyill@fau.edu with any questions or concerns you may have about your UBorrow material. Stay safe, Owls!

interlibrary loans and paging requests
