Literature Search Request Form

Fields marked with an * are required

FAU-Boca Raton (FAU-BR) faculty members can request a literature search for a research project.

Please note the following when requesting a literature search:

All requests for a literature search should receive confirmation of receipt within 2 business days.

The head of Reference & Instructional Services (RIS) will review the request and select a Library faculty member with relevant subject expertise. The head of RIS and the Library faculty member will decide whether the Library faculty member is able to undertake the search, and whether the Library has access to information resources relevant to the project.

The head of the RIS Department must approve a literature search request; no exceptions.

Once the request is approved, the Library faculty member will contact the FAU-BR faculty member to clarify details.

Alternatively, FAU-BR faculty members can request a one-on-one consultation with a Library faculty member at the Research Consultation Page for instruction on finding suitable literature.

See the Wimberly Library’s Literature Search Policy for additional details.
