Access During the 2020-2021 Academic Year
Thank you for visiting the School of Theology Archives and Research Collections page. There have been some changes to access to the archival and research collections during the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters.
The Archivist and Preservation Librarian is available via email at email@example.com. Appointments are required for access. Please contact her to set up a Zoom reference interview to discuss your research topic, resources required, how to find resources online, and finally to set up an in-person time to review library and archival materials that do not circulate (On-campus access is available to BU STH students, faculty, and staff only. Appointments are required.).
The Archivist and Preservation Librarian is on campus Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30AM to 6:00PM.
Boston University School of Theology Students, Faculty, and Staff
In-person access to the archives and research collections will be limited to students, faculty, and staff of Boston University. Appointments are required for access. Please contact Kara Jackman, Archivist and Preservation Librarian via Ask the Archivist or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find a date and time.
Non-Boston University School of Theology Researchers
If you need access to any of the STH Archives holdings, including but not limited to, New England Annual Conference church records, STH Archives, and other collections, please contact Kara Jackman via the Ask the Archivist form or email (email@example.com). Ask for scans of specific folders in our archival collections or chapter(s) from a book in our Research Collections. Search for archival material here, and for research collections through Boston University Libraries Search catalog.
