News and Announcements

The Government Information & Maps Department of FAU’s Wimberly Library has put together an online guide with state, local, and federal government resources on what you need to know to register to vote.  You will be able to research whether you are eligible to vote, where to register, options for submitting your ballot, and more.

 

Have you been unable to read an article or other publication because you had to pay for it?  For professors and researchers, are you frustrated by limited options for sharing or posting your published scholarly work?  If so, Open Access is a response to these scenarios.

 

While we’ve never had a semester like this, FAU Libraries’ staff has still been working hard to get students the help they need! Our Instruction and Engagement Services Department quickly adapted to remote learning by offering virtual office hours, staffing the “Ask a Librarian” chat, and connecting with students one-on-one. During the several months that we’ve been remote, our services have made an impact on students and staff.

 

In response to student needs and in support of programs such as the Educate Tomorrow program, the FAU Wimberly Library has created a space for students to reserve a quiet, private spot to take exams.

Hispanic Heritage Month Graphic

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with the FAU Libraries! The 2020 Hispanic Heritage Month theme is “Hispanics: Be Proud of Your Past, Embrace the Future.” The theme invites all of us to take pride in the accomplishments of Hispanic/Latinxs and reflect on how Latinx contributions have enriched our daily lives and can lead us forward into a more inclusive future.

 

Welcome back Owls! Please join the FAU Libraries in celebrating our most recent FAU faculty authors. New titles include subjects such as: Middle Eastern Studies, Social Science and Psychology, Gender Studies, Nursing, and Plato. 

 

Palm Beach State Access

PBSC students, faculty, and staff will need to request access to the Wimberly Library and authorization to check out materials.  All requests will take 1 business day to be confirmed.

 

The FAU Libraries' Interlibrary Loan Department has expanded its services again! For the first time since closing due to the COVID-19, the FAU community can request physical material from our continental US library partners. 

 

Borrow Materials Update

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, our stacks are currently closed to patrons. However, we are still committed to serving you with energy and creativity. This semester, we are introducing a new contactless way to deliver your books.
