Welcome to the BU LIbraries


Greetings! My name is Barbara Maratos and I am the Literature and Languages Librarian for the BU Libraries. I serve as the library liaison to the Departments of English, Romance Studies and World Languages and Literatures.

Library Instruction

Librarians are available for presentations or workshops, and can also develop information literacy activities delivered synchronously or asynchronously. We can also prepare online course guides focused on resources and strategies specific to the topics, assignments, and learning outcomes of your course.

Possible presentation topics include:

  • Developing research questions by exploring scholarly sources
  • Finding, evaluating, and using information resources
  • Navigating the Libraries website for research tools and databases
  • Using bibliographic management tools such as RefWorks, Zotero, and Mendeley
