BU Libraries Search, the main search engine for the Libraries' collections, provides access to a wide range of resources including books and e-books, articles, films, music, and more. The video below shows how to limit your searches in BULS to online materials. For more general video tutorials, including Quick Start, Refining Your Search, and Advanced Search., plus additional tips for searching and working with your search results, go to BU Libraries Search Help.
This brief video shows how to limit your searches in BU Libraries Search to only resources that are available online.
The HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS) allows current BU students, faculty, and staff to have online reading access to selected materials that are in the BU Libraries but are currently unavailable due to the closure of the Libraries.
Faculty, students, and staff can access these materials via BU Libraries Search. Physical books in BU Libraries that are also available via HathiTrust will have a “Full Text Available at HathiTrust” link included in their records in BU Libraries Search.
Access to these books is a multi-step process. Please follow the steps outlined here to read the books online.
