Delivery of materials usually takes:

books - 7 or more days
Rare & hard-to-find materials

The Interlibrary Loan Department is here to support your research and teaching needs by expanding the range of materials available for scholarship beyond the collections of the FAU Libraries. 

This department provides article delivery and short term loans from a vast network of libraries and document suppliers on a local, state, national, and international basis.

Use Interlibrary Loan services to:

  • Retrieve FAU materials from other campuses
  • Request materials from other State University Libraries via UBorrow
  • Request Articles and Book Chapters
  • Request loans of items not owned by FAU
  • For Distance Learners have both FAU materials and ILL loans shipped directly to your location
