If you would like to recommend a book for purchase, please submit your request through our Suggest a Purchase page. Please keep in mind that if we decide to order the book it may take several weeks before it is available for borrowing.
There are several ways you can obtain books or articles that we do not own. These include:
WorldCat Discovery. WorldCat Discovery Local allows current BU faculty, staff, and students to borrow books directly from other Boston Library Consortium libraries. Turnaround time is approximately three working days. (How to use WorldCat Discovery)
Interlibrary Loan. Interlibrary Loan services allow current BU faculty, staff, and students to request books, articles, book chapters, and other materials that our ILL staff will obtain from other libraries. Books generally take 1-3 weeks to arrive; articles are generally delivered electronically within 1-2 days.
