Library "Do-It-Yourself" (DIY)

Library does not have the item I need

If you are looking for an article or a book not found at FAU Libraries...

Order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) using ILLiad, and we will borrow it from another library. (First time users will be asked for some registration information.)

For books: Use "Request a Loan."  
For articles: Use "Request a Photocopy."

UBorrow allows you to request materials directly from participating libraries within Florida's state university/college library system.

If you would like to request a book located at another FAU campus...

In the catalog record for the book, look at the lower left corner, click on the "Branch Campus Delivery / Interlibrary Loan" hyperlink. You will be asked to log into ILLiad to request the book.

Check your FAU email, where you will receive the notice that your book is ready for pick up.
