Off Campus Access

Remote (off campus) access to the FDU databases is available only to FDU students, faculty, and staff.

Resource Not Available?

Sometimes during the course of your research you will find a book or an article in one of our databases that our library does not have access to. This does not mean you are out of options. The library can request this book or article from another library and have a copy sent to our library or your email depending on the format. This is known as Interlibrary Loan or ILL.

Please see Requesting Interlibrary Loans for information about this process .
