Who We Are

Boston University Libraries is composed of the Pappas Law Library, the School of Theology Library, the Alumni Medical Library, and Mugar Memorial Library and branches (African Studies, Astronomy, Music, Science & Engineering, Stone Science, Pickering Educational Resources, and the Frederick S. Pardee Management Library).

Library staff are available in each of our libraries to provide services and assistance. If you’re looking for someone to assist with circulation, collections, reference, or other areas, our experienced and committed staff are here to help. If you would like to ask a question by email, please use our Ask a Librarian service. If you’d like help in person, we look forward to your visit.

While our current mission is to direct our resources to support study, teaching, and research at all levels, we are also dedicated to achieving the next phase of our evolution. Please let us know if you have any ideas to help us bring the spirit and reality of Boston University’s goal of Choosing to be Great to the BU Libraries.
