Dear Boston University Community,

I am writing to let you know of the unveiling of the new Boston University Libraries website. Today we will implement some important changes in design and functionality that will improve research and learning for the University community.

NewSiteA new Boston University Libraries Search capability allows a single point of search across all our books, articles, media, and other research materials regardless of physical or electronic format, whether local or remote. The flexible interface also places a premium on user’s ability to refine searches to their individual needs.

In addition to a new look and feel, the site improves navigation to library Services and Help pages, as well as useful information on Hours, Locations, and News. The newly designed site also highlights the extensive Research Guides to all our collections and content. You can still also continue to use the websites of the Law, Medical, and Theology libraries.

The combined efforts of librarians and staff from IS&T and Interactive Design have created a website to match the needs of the University community in the 21st century. Although the site has changed, the URL has not. Please join us at www.bu.edu/library to see the transformation of the Boston University Libraries website.

Bob Hudson

University Librarian
