Get the book off the shelf, please
Please ignore the Request button in Boston University Libraries Search, if the item is “Available at” the library.” Retrieve available library materials from the stacks yourself.
BU Libraries practice an open stacks policy: it’s the quickest way to get books into your hands. The libraries will be turning off the Request button for available items as soon as the software permits. If you do hit the Request button and make a selection for an available item, you may receive an email from the libraries asking you to go to the library stacks. The libraries regret any inconvenience or confusion that the temporary presence of this button may cause.
