Make the most out your experience as a
Boston University student

As enrolled students of Boston University, members of the military community have access to the comprehensive library resources, professional services and programs, and career services that the University offers all its students.

Library Resources

The staff of the Boston University Libraries provides extensive service to the entire University community with a collection of more than 2.1 million volumes in paper and 3.7 million microform equivalents, 29,000 current journals, and access to hundreds of electronic databases. Boston University’s library resources are expanded through a consortium arrangement with local research libraries that include Boston College, Northeastern University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and others. An interlibrary loan system further expands these assets.

While central service is provided by the Mugar Memorial Library, two branch libraries are of particular interest to students enrolled at Boston University’s military locations: Science and Engineering and the Frederick S. Pardee Management Library.

A librarian at the Pardee Management Library is assigned as the liaison between the students at military sites and the main campus libraries. The assigned librarian makes periodic trips to military sites to meet with Boston University faculty and students, as well as the librarians in the local base libraries. Within the professional relationship, the liaison helps students with reference questions by telephone and e-mail and explains how to submit interlibrary loan requests through their base libraries. The staff at the Science and Engineering library is prepared to assist with bibliographic searches in the Inspec database, reference questions, and interlibrary loan services.

Boston University graduate students at military sites are entitled to use campus libraries and research facilities in Boston, and the Marine Corps base libraries in North Carolina at Cherry Point, New River, and Camp Lejeune. Students also have access to libraries at East Carolina University and the University of North Carolina-Wilmington. Boston University has arranged with the base libraries for special services to support students in the master’s program, including:

  • Subscriptions to major management journals at each library
  • An annual acquisition program of management books
  • Access by each library to the Boston University Libraries online catalog
  • Fax access by each library to the Interlibrary Loan Office at Mugar Memorial Library
  • “Computer Select” and “Business Periodicals Ondisc” [ABI/Inform] periodicals database in the Cherry Point Library
  • Paper supplies for library printers
  • Secure areas in each library for computers reserved for the exclusive use of Boston University students

The Martin Luther King Jr. Center

Dedicated to the values and memory of alumnus Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968), the King Center addresses the personal, educational, and career development needs of Boston University’s students. The Center is a centralized source of comprehensive professional services and programs for undergraduate and graduate students seeking counseling, learning, career planning, or placement assistance. The Center, located at 19 Deerfield Street, is home to a number of offices that help students to gain the maximum benefit from their academic efforts, including the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Disability Services Office (, and the Office of Career Services ( For more information about these offices, please visit the websites provided, or read on for further details concerning the Office of Career Services.

Center for Career Development

The Office of Career Services helps students to obtain information, clarify goals, and develop career plans. The Office’s Internship Program assists students who are interested in opportunities for learning and working in the community—opportunities that will enhance their academic training. Placement/On-Campus Recruiting offers assistance in the job search when a student has chosen a career direction and is graduating within the academic year. The Credentials Service enables a student to establish a file for potential employers that contain letters of recommendation and unofficial copies of transcripts. The Career Resource Library maintains current job listings and a collection of literature on a wide variety of careers and employers. For further information, please call 617-353-3590 or visit

Health Care Services

Boston University does not provide health care services for students enrolled in programs at military sites. Students are responsible for their own health care needs.
