In March 2016 the BU Libraries Assessment Committee surveyed BU faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students to determine their use of and satisfaction with current library services and resources. The quantitative and qualitative data have been analyzed and the results are now available in our Survey Report.
The report covers findings from the survey about the libraries’ collections, including opinions on the resources provided by the libraries, their use, and how they are found; the support the libraries provide for research at BU; the libraries’ support of teaching and learning at BU; and the libraries as physical locations for study, collaboration, accessing the collection, and assistance. A technical appendix describing survey methodology and details on the assumptions behind the statistics is included in the report.
The Committee wishes to thank to all of the students and faculty who have taken our surveys. The response rates were terrific and the data helps to drive real improvements to the BU libraries system. Below are some of the winners of the iPad mini prizes.
Between the hours of midnight and 6:00 am, access to the library will be limited to currently registered Boston University students. All six floors of the library will be available for study space.

Also, the Music and African Studies Libraries and Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center will be closed.
Mugar Library will provide a van service from midnight until 6:00 am for anyone that needs a ride home on campus.
