At the Library

What can your card do at the library? 

It allows you:

  • Anytime access! A valid Owl Card is required to gain entrance from 10pm- 7am, Sunday through Friday. 
  • Easy Access! The library has gates that are active during all business hours. While the library is open to the public, anybody without an Owl Card is required to sign-in at the service desk as a visitor. With your Card in hand, you can swipe in and keep on going. 
  • Material Access! With the power of your Owl Card, you can check out material to take with you. Need to access one of the reserve items? Now you can do that, too. 
  • Distance Access! While it is true you can log into EZProxy with your FAUNet ID, your OwlCard gives you an alternative way to sign in through your "Library account sign on." 
  • ILL Requests! Material not in FAU's collection can be requested through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) department. Users must create an account and an OwlCard is required.
