Boston & Its Neighborhoods

Databases, Periodical Indexes, & Abstracts

Boston University Libraries subscribe to the following subject and interdisciplinary databases. They provide citations and sometimes access to full-text journal articles on many subjects, including Boston-area topics.   If, for example, you are doing research on the architecture of  “Faneuil Hall”,  you could type in that name in the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals.
