  • To proceed to the FAUdok service, please click on „Order via local catalogue, FAUdok or Interlibrary Loan“.
  • Select your preferred FAU Library branch and log in with your UB ID (User number) and password.
  • If the item is available for FAUdok services, an online request form will pop up automatically. Fill in the author, title of the article and page numbers.
    For journals, fill in the year of publication and/or volume.
  • To submit the order, please check the box declaring non-commercial use („urheberrechtliche Erklärung“) and click on „submit FAUdok order”.
