Requesting Textbooks


The Interlibrary Loan office makes every effort to fill all requests made to our office, including requests for textbook materials.

However, textbooks can be difficult to obtain via ILL as many libraries are unwilling to loan their textbook materials to other libraries, preferring to keep the textbooks they have purchased for use by their own students.

Also keep in mind, the length of the loan and whether it will be renewable is determined by the lending library, not the FAU Interlibrary Loan Department. It is unlikely that a lending library will loan an item for a complete semester.

If you do need a textbook for the full term, you many need to put in a new request. Please keep in mind, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to find another copy or that it will arrive before your first loan is due.

If we are unable to find a lender, you will need to buy or rent a copy from the FAU Bookstore or from a third-party vendor.
