FAU Owl Card

Your Owl Card is your library card and enables you to borrow library materials and access online electronic databases and journals from off-campus. The card must be activated at the Circulation Desk. This is a one-time procedure that takes less than a minute and is done in person for the protection of the cardholder. Go to the Owl Card Services page for more information on its uses on campus.
