Class guide for EME 6051 taught by Dr. Caloff.

Interlibrary Loan FAQs

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service provided by the FAU Libraries to further the scholarly research of Florida Atlantic University's faculty, students and staff by obtaining library materials unavailable at our library. 

Interlibrary Loan FAQs

The Boca Raton, Jupiter, SeaTech, and Harbor Branch campuses use the ILLiad system to request interlibrary and intralibrary loan requests.  

About Interlibrary Loan

If you have looked in the catalog and in the databases and still cannot find the material that you are looking for, or if you know the specific name of the book or article that you are trying to find that you know is not at FAU, you can use interlibrary loan (ILL).

Interlibrary loan uses a program to process your requests and find items at other libraries. Intralibrary loan will request materials that are located at other FAU branches. You can also use ILL to track your requests once they have been entered. Materials can then be picked up at Boca Raton or the branch closest to you.

Remember that FAU will not interlibrary loan required texts for your class or materials that are already owned by FAU, so if an item is missing from the shelves, fill out a lost or stolen materials form and submit it online or at the service desk. REMEMBER Interlibrary loan takes time (7-10 days), so you cannot wait until the last minute to request these materials.
