Beginning this summer and throughout the fall semester, we are working to upgrade the research experience by making ongoing improvements to our Research Guides.
You may encounter changes in the look and feel of the Research Guides website along with structural changes to our existing guides. If you have any questions or concerns about this process please let us know.

Educational Leadership: Higher Education

Locating Books in the Library

 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 "Finding Articles" or OneSearch link to the left). 

The Advanced search screen allows you to combine terms using “and, or, not” as well as limiting a search by material type, language, and/or date.
