Distance Education Advisories

For all users regardless of your location

Begin your use of subscription indexes, databases and eJournals from BU library web pages such as the main home or at music’s home.

When you enter through BU library web pages, you will be asked for your BU login information. This will authenticate you as a BU affiliate and ensure that you will be granted “deep” access to publicly restricted subscription resources.

Please see important tips and review

Doctoral Residencies

We look forward to welcoming doctoral candidates for residencies. Gather for your orientation to the Music Library of Mugar Memorial Library, and Mugar itself, at 771 Comm Ave, 2nd floor, listening room area. During your time here, know that there are plenty of outlets for laptops and we have wireless access–but bring your own electric power cable and flash drives. See also hours for the Music staff, the Mugar Building, and the School of Music Curriculum Library.

Please feel free to contact us before you arrive and let us know if there is anything we can help you with while you are on campus. Please also be careful when parking on Commonwealth Avenue. The City of Boston *tows* vehicles parked on Comm Ave between 12 am and 7 am.

Technical trouble-shooting

Mac users & .pdfs: please see this new advisory if you encounter difficulties opening .pdfs and ‘Preview’ is your default application. We thank Ron Giltrap of Information Technology for the final diagnosis and solution presented here.
