You may or may not physically be in Boston or New England this summer, but Boston and the Boston University Libraries are here for you.
We will be partners with you and the faculty in making the most of the library resources and services available to you as you study, learn, create, and share information about Boston and New England and their place in developments from the industrial revolution to the digital revolution.
This guide provides research sources for your CGS courses and projects this summer. See the General Resources page for information on the Libraries' main search engine and the News Sources page for sources for past and present news. Specific resources for your Humanities, Rhetoric, and Social Science classes are listed separately. There are also links to other Boston-related guides, some of them created for other courses, sprinkled throughout this guide.
But the BU Libraries' help doesn't end with the guide. There are many ways to get help. (See the Getting Help page for details.) No question is too big or too small, so let us know what you need.
