Get to know our new catalog & discovery system. Find trainings, deadlines, and information about Alma & Primo VE.


The FIU Libraries, along with all SUS and FCS libraries, are in the process of a system migration in order to bring our customers the best service available. As we go through this transition, patrons will experience some changes. One of these changes is that the UBorrow function will no longer be available and the link will be removed from the library website. 

All UBorrow items currently on loan must be returned on or before June 30, 2021 in order to avoid late fees. Interlibrary loan service will remain in effect throughout the transition to obtain materials that are not available in the FIU Libraries. UBorrow will be restored as Resource Sharing when the transition is complete. We appreciate your patience during this transition and invite you to contact us with any concerns you may have.
