UBORROW allows you to request materials directly from participating libraries within Florida’s state university system. This unmediated borrowing service increases your access to the collections of the other universities in Florida and delivers more quickly than standard Interlibrary Loan.
How it Works:
When searching the FAU Catalog, click on the blue UBORROW link towards the top right corner. This will take you to the State University Libraries’ catalog, showing all the available items within the university system. If you want an item, click on the UBORROW icon again, provide your FAU library number, and select where you want to pick up your book. You will receive an email in a few days letting you know that your book is ready for you.
