Learn who can check out material and read about loan and return policies- including fines. If an item you need is off site, circulation staff can help you have it retrieved.


Whether you are looking for pointers on where to get started with sources for a paper, or could use a librarian subject specialist’s advice on finding the best resources for your research, we’re here to help.

Interlibrary Borrowing

When you need to go beyond the BU Libraries the Boston Library Consortium (BLC), BU WorldCat Local, and Interlibrary Loan (ILL) make it possible.


Faculty may place required and supplemental reading assignments on Reserve, including library books, personal copies, physical and electronic articles. Students may locate materials placed on Reserve by using our Course Readings system.

For Faculty

Get to know the libraries at BU with a virtual tour, or set up a live tour with one of our locations. Professors, your students can get an edge on their research projects with librarian-taught sessions introducing the various resources we offer.

For BU Alumni

We hope you’ll continue to use the resources and collections we offer after graduation. Find out how to get an alumni card and which library services are available to you.
