We offer instruction for faculty and to students. Learn about the use of electronic resources, bibliographic tools such as RefWorks, and the overall process of posing problems, collecting and evaluating information, drawing conclusions, and presenting findings.
Boston University Libraries will provide scanning and electronic document delivery of scanned materials from the Libraries for faculty and doctoral students by request. Faculty and doctoral students at BU who need scanned portions of books and other printed materials held by the BU Libraries for instruction or research should submit a request via the Scanning Requests Form.
