Purchase Suggestions:


Patron cannot log into library resources from off campus:  Students are to use their student ID number and four-digit birthdate as PIN. They do not use information from their Rattler Card.

If they need to access a database, our system may also ask for their FAMU credentials. It’s the same information they use to log into FAMU email and IRattler.
