I found it - now what?

If the newspaper you seek is available on microfilm, we may be able to borrow the dates you need through Interlibrary Loan, at no charge to you.

Online ILL Forms
Mugar Library offers Interlibrary Loan services  to most current BU faculty, staff, and students; all patrons except those affiliated with the Schools of Law and Medicine may place and track requests through our Online ILL Forms (Law and Medicine affiliates must use their own library services rather than those at Mugar). For general inquires to the Interlibrary Loan office, please call (617) 353-3706 or email

Unfortunately this service can't be extended to Alumni and non-affiliates, but keep in mind that public libraries often offer similar services.
