Owl Card

Your Owl Card is your library card and enables you to check materials out of the library and access online electronic databases and journals off-campus.  The card must be activated at the Library prior to use.  This is a one-time procedure that takes less than a minute and is done in person for the protection of the cardholder. In order to access the online resources from outside of FAU you must login to EZproxy/Off Campus Connect using your 14-digit OWL Card number and the month and day of your birth (MMDD).
