The FAU Libraries consist of five branches with three facilities. Close to 1 million people visit the FAU Libraries yearly (enough to fill the FAU Football Stadium more than 32 times). The Libraries are open 285 hours every week during the academic year and house approximately 3.7 million items including books, periodicals, government documents, microforms, maps, media, and unique items. The Libraries provide access to over 100,000 journals and more than 580 databases in all subject areas. Each year over 1.5 million searches are performed using the Libraries homepage.
Rotarians were invited to view a special exhibit of Samuel Adams materials in the Spirit of America Collection prior to the luncheon. After lunch, Rotarians were offered a variety of library tours including a visit to the Gruber Artificial Intelligence Sandbox, the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, and the Recorded Sound Archives.
