Who is Eligible?

After months of planning, reviewing safety guidelines produced by the CDC and the University, and discussion with colleagues across the state and nation to determine best practices, the FAU Libraries have now reopened our facilities to FAU and Palm Beach State College students, staff, and faculty.

update: you may now place interlibrary loan requests for physical items

We are happy to announce that we are again able to process Interlibrary Loan requests for physical materials in addition to electronically-delivered book chapters and articles.

Physical items located at the Boca Campus Wimberly Library are available on request via our Paging system. However, interbranch delivery of materials from the Jupiter Campus Library is still currently unavailable.

For more information on requesting items, please click here.
