Welcome to the University/College Library. This is the library for you at FAU Davie Campus. Room 103 is exclusively a FAU computer lab and you will need to log-in with your username (first part of your email address before "@fau.edu") and your birthdate (MMDDYY).
In order to print you will need either your OWL card or you can purchase a blank guest print card for $1.
From home you can access the resources of the FAU Library at Boca through Off Campus/E-Z Proxy. You will need to enter your OWL card number (all of the numbers that are between the "A"s) and your birthday without the year (MMDD).
If you choose to use the internet for your research keep in mind these things:
Don't forget that you also have to cite the source. Can you identify at least an author, title and date?
Journals - Academic / Scholarly publications of articles written by experts in the particular field of study. These articles are written for others within that particular discipline or profession using vocabulary and terminology common to them. Example: Journal of American Medical Association.
(Within journals is the more rigorous scholarly peer-reviewed or refereed articles that have to pass review by a board of experts in the field before publication.)
Magazines - General publications of articles written for people to get an overview of a topic, meant for general population comprehension. Magazine articles may be written by experts but are meant to be relatable to a larger audience than journals. Example: Newsweek.
These are some of the databases available to you specific to women's studies. All of the following databases/electronic journals are available off-campus via EZproxy.
The FAU Libraries provide off-campus access to its databases and online journals through EZproxy. Off-Campus access is restricted to currently enrolled FAU students, faculty and staff.
