General Information For Borrowers

FAU Faculty, Students (currently enrolled) and Staff will need to have a valid FAU Owl Card, which serves as the library card at the FAU Libraries.

State University System Faculty, Students (currently enrolled) and Staff will need to have a valid University ID from their home institution.

FAU alumni will need to show current Alumni Association membership card.

Faculty, Students (currently enrolled) and Staff of the Florida Community College System will need to present a valid College ID card from their home institution and proof of employment or enrollment.

Patrons from participating
SEFLIN institutions must present a current SEFLIN Library Card or Sunshine Library Card from their home library before obtaining an FAU library card.

Friends of FAU Libraries have privileges to most library services as explained in the Categories of Memberships. Please consult with Circulation Desk staff or Library Administration, if you have questions.

Patrons participating in Special Programs, Courses and Seminars may be eligible for borrowing privileges when special arrangements have been made with the FAU Libraries. Please inquire at the Circulation Desk or the Administrative Office on the appropriate campus.

 

Responsibility For Library Card Use

Card Holder assumes the responsibility for all items charged to the library card, and must guarantee the safe return of all library materials.  If an item is lost, stolen, or damaged, the card holder is responsible for all replacement fees and related costs. A library card may not be loaned to another person.

Lost or stolen library cards should be reported to the Owl Card Center and the Access Services Department. The library card holder has the responsibility to prevent use by anyone other than the holder and is responsible for any fines or lost book charges incurred on his/her card. Once the loss or theft of the library card is reported to the Access Services Department, the library card will be immediately blocked against further use.  Please contact the Owl Card Center to replace the card.
