Boston Library Consortium (BLC) card
A Boston Library Consortium Card allows the bearer to borrow – in person – circulating material from a member library, just as you would from a BU library. (A Consortium Card is not needed to use another library’s collection in-house. You would not need a card for access to journals in most cases, for example.)
Boston University faculty, staff, and graduate students on the Charles River Campus, in good standing (owing under $10.00 to Boston University libraries), may obtain a Consortium Card by filling out an application form (see below). Medical Campus affiliates apply at the Alumni Medical Library.
Per Consortium agreement guidelines, Boston University undergraduate students must demonstrate a research need to be eligible for a Consortium card.
Your Consortium Card will be available for pickup at the Mugar Memorial Library Circulation desk three business days after the application form is submitted. Please bring a picture ID with you. Cards must be re-validated (at the Circulation desk) each semester of the academic year.
