Beginning Research at BU    www.bu.edu/library

BU Libraries Search is a gateway to books (both print and ebooks); peer-reviewed articlesgovernment documents and media.

What you need to know:

  • Sign In after your first search. This allows you to keep a record of your search strategies and results using My Favorites - simply click the mark image by each record you want to save (saved items = pinned item)
     
  •  BULS searches for books, articles, and other formats such as government documents, dissertations, short news articles and images. The results list will be a combination of formats sorted by relevance. Each result indicates that it is available either in print or online -- or sometimes, both. findinlibrary = print
     
  • BULS does not search most newspapers (such as the New York Times); BUT we have other databases that cover newspapers and more.
     
  • To refine searches use quote marks to retrieve phrases ("gettysburg address") or consider looking for keywords only in the title (as opposed to looking in the full record.)
     
  • Need articles in "peer-reviewed journals"? No problem!
