Getting Started

Getting Started @ FAU Libraries

The goal of this resource guide page is to provide students with prompt access to FAU library resources. The following will help you get started:

  1. Authenticate yourself to use the libraries' electronic resources as a currently enrolled FAU student, faculty, or staff member. You will be prompted to log-into OpenAthens or EZproxy.
  2. Search the library catalog for books or journal titles: Links to online books and journals are also contained within the catalog.
  3. Search subject databases to find articles in journals: If you are trying to decide which database is appropriate for your research, look at the list of databases listed on the Journal Articles Tab.
  4. Check your account status or renew material. You can renew your books and check your library account online.
  5. Create an Interlibrary Loan account. This will allow you to place requests for books and journal articles not owned by FAU Libraries. The ILL office will contact other borrowing libraries around the world to request your book or article. Journal articles are normally sent electronically and books can be picked up at your preferred Library.
  6. Do you need additional help? The Research and Instructional Services Department provides help with using the library by chat, email, and phone! Ask a Librarian!
