Course Reserves

Due to COVID -19, the FAU Libraries are not able to provide physical Course Reserves at this time.  Faculty can still submit requests for electronic materials.


Join us in celebrating our FAU faculty authors. This month’s list includes electronic and print titles on subjects related to: Chemistry, Remote Sensing, Anthropology, Nursing, Criminology, Educational Leadership, and even James Bond (to name a few).


When Florida Atlantic University transitioned to remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the FAU Libraries partnered with FAU’s Office of Financial Aid to assist students in need of access to educational materials and did not have a capable laptop.  

The FAU Libraries repurposed 100 laptops for long-term loan to students, enabling them to continue with their college education without missing a beat. 


We encourage you to hold on to your library books while library buildings are closed.  Book drops are available. 


Due to the ongoing pandemic, the FAU Libraries are still closed. However, our librarians are available to provide expert assistance and offer research help. Our newest service enhancement allows patrons to directly chat with a librarian from our website. 


This month we are showcasing some of our faculty’s newest additions to the FAU Libraries’ collection. The titles are diverse and range from topics that include: engineering, history, higher education, social science, short stories, and psychology to name a few.


The FAU Libraries have released multiple new webinars in order to continue to provide expert assistance to support teaching, learning, and research while our buildings are closed and we are working remotely. Our Instruction and Engagement Department has put together a YouTube playlist with our most popular webinars


As we get feedback on our plan for reopening the FAU Libraries’ physical facilities, we will share information widely with our students, faculty, and staff, as well as with the local community. We will need your input, your support, and your patience as we move forward.


In Dean Hixson's latest blog, she highlights the expansion of our curbside book delivery and the tremendous work our Interlibrary Loan Department has done during the pandemic. 


We have expanded our curbside delivery service for students, in addition to faculty.  Requests to borrow materials from the Wimberly Library can be made online and scheduled to be picked up outside the library.
