Faculty Resources and Services

An overview of library services and resources for faculty

About the University/College Library

The University/College Library is a joint-use facility located on the A. Hugh Adams Central Campus (Building 17) serving Broward College (BC) and Florida Atlantic University (FAU). This guide provides an overview of library policies and procedures, services, and resources for your curriculum needs. We value your feedback. Feel free to contact us and share your suggestions.

FAU Faculty Electronic Resource Access

Many electronic resources from the University/College Library are available to FAU faculty. Due to complex licensing and authentication through the state, not all of our databases are available to FAU faculty.
To take advantage of these resources, you must register in person at the University/College Library Check In/Check Out desk.
Please call the Reference Desk at 954-201-6653 if you have any questions.
