BU Libraries

BU alumni can borrow all circulating materials from any of the almost dozen University libraries, aside from online resources. If you have an alumni card, you can borrow books for the customary four-week loan period.

With more than two million books, journals, electronic, and other non-print sources, the BU Libraries are ranked 70th out of more than 3,000 libraries in North America. Plus, we’re the second largest academic library in the Boston area, after Harvard.
