For our circulating materials, you can read about general BU Libraries circulation policies.

Our special collections that do no circulate include:

  • M3 collected works
  • some M2 scores
  • special facsimiles
  • Fiedler and Landon collections
  • extremely fragile items

The physical A/V collection is housed in closed stacks and is retrievable during music staff hours. You can find out the loan period for an item by logging into the catalog. You can also use on-site playback facilities to listen to or view items.
