The BU Libraries is hosting a Research Help pop-up station during the last full week of classes to answer questions and provide research support. The Ask-A-Librarian Pop Up will be staffed by librarians ready to answer research questions and help students make the most out of the resources available to them at the BU Libraries.

The Ask-A-Librarian Pop Up will be on the first floor of Mugar Memorial Library just past its main entrance. All BU affiliates are welcome to stop by with specific questions or to learn more about the BU Libraries services and librarians’ areas of expertise. No appointments are needed.

Librarians offer a wide array of guidance and support to patrons, including how to use databases, improve searches for materials, access primary sources, cite and manage sources, and narrow or broaden research topics. Subject specialist librarians also offer in-depth, expert assistance in a number of subjects.

BU Libraries provides research supports and consultations throughout the year across numerous channels. In addition to visiting occasional pop ups, users can chat, text, call or schedule an appointment with a librarian.
