Library "Do-It-Yourself" (DIY)

I need to check out or renew library materials

All FAU library materials can be renewed online, provided that no other users have placed a hold on the item being renewed. To see a list of materials you have checked out and their due dates, and items on hold, click on the link View/Review Books located on the FAU Libraries homepage. You will need your Owl Card number (just the 14-digit number and your birthday MMDD - e.g., enter 0304 for March 4th) to log into your account. If you have items checked out through UBorrow, you will be able to request renewal of them online as well.  



  • If you have items checked out and do not have your Owl Card, you are able to renew them over the phone by calling the Service Desk (561-297-6911) and providing your Z Number.
  • Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Materials: Request renewal through your Interlibrary Loan account.
