Important Information about E-Resources

Florida Atlantic University Libraries provides access to thousands of electronic resources in support of research and scholarship by FAU’s students, faculty and staff.  We are committed to ensuring access to our licensed resources is available to all users.  If you are unable to connect with an electronic resource, please contact eresources@fau.edu or 561-297-3783 so we can notify the vendor and resolve the issue. 


The FAU Libraries do not accept donations of books and material due to serious space constraints and the high cost of sorting, reviewing, and processing donated material.

Please consider one of these other options for passing along your material: the Friends of the Boca Raton Public Library for their bookstore, your local public library, a local used bookstore such as Bookwise, or charitable organizations, for example Faith Farm or Books for Africa.

Gifts of Rare and Unique Materials
If you feel your potential gift is of critical research interest to the Libraries (rare or unique items only), please call 561-297-3168 and leave your name and contact information, along with a description or characterization of the materials. You may also send this information to us by e-mail at dfrood@fau.edu. We will respond as soon as possible.

For further information, please see the Florida Atlantic University Libraries Gifts/Donations Policy. Thank you for your interest in supporting the FAU Libraries.
