Getting Books Not Available at BU

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.

  • Books from Boston College, Northeastern, and Brandeis. Books can be borrowed—in person—from the libraries of these three institutions using your Terrier card, the same way you borrow from a BU library.
  • BLC Cards. A Boston Library Consortium Card allows the bearer to borrow—in person—circulating material from member libraries, just as you would from a BU library. Boston University faculty, staff, and students on the Charles River Campus may obtain a Consortium Card by filling out an application form. Medical Campus affiliates apply at the Alumni Medical Library. 
    • The BLC card is not needed to borrow from BLC members Boston College, Northeastern, and Brandeis. (See above.)
