The brief record in the library catalog provides the following information about an item, and can help locate it:
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 the databases (see "Databases" tab above). The Advanced Search screen allows you to combine terms using “and", "or", and "not” as well as limiting a search by location, date, format, or language.
OneSearch is a good place to start your research. Search across a variety of quality information provided by FAU Libraries: Journal and newspaper articles, books, maps, music, videos, and more.
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.
To request books from other libraries, use Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Loan time takes 7-10 days, so don’t wait until the last minute!
