What's a Call Number?

Refer to call numbers to find our books on the shelves. Every book is assigned a call number which tells you where in the library you can find it.  For more help, watch our short tutorial.

How do I Search the Catalog?

FAU Library Catalog:

The Library Catalog allows you to search for books, government documents, DVDs, electronic books, and other materials in the Library's collection. The catalog will tell you if the library owns a particular periodical (journal or magazine) but does not include the articles found in periodicals. To find these you must use a different database (click on the "Find Articles" tab above). 

  • To search for a general topic, use the "Anywhere" search option. This finds the words that you type anywhere in the title or content of the book.

Need help, watch this video (OR try OneSearch to look for journal articles as well as items in our Library Catalog)!

Off Campus Connect (EZProxy)

If you are using FAU's online resources from off campus, please authenticate yourself by logging in at Off Campus Connect (EZproxy).

Find Books Beyond FAU

The WorldCat database allows you to search a combined catalog of most of the libraries in North America, and many in other parts of the world. Items not owned by FAU may be ordered through the Interlibrary Loan service.
