Browse journal articles, books and e-books in the BU collections. Narrow results using the filters on the right hand side of the page in the BU Library Search (i.e. material type, online availability, year, library, journal, etc.). You will not have a problem finding information on your topic but must limit your broad search to target the exact type of information you are looking for.

Getting Books and Articles Not Available at BU

How to obtain books and articles that BU does not own:

  • Interlibrary Loan. Interlibrary Loan services allow current BU faculty, staff, and students to request books, articles, book chapters, and other materials that our ILL staff will obtain from other libraries. Books generally take 2-4 weeks to arrive; articles are generally delivered electronically within 1-2 days.

  • BLC Cards. A Boston Library Consortium Card allows the bearer to borrow—in person—circulating material from a member library, just as you would from a BU library. Boston University faculty, staff, and students on the Charles River Campus may obtain a Consortium Card by filling out an application form. Medical Campus affiliates apply at the Alumni Medical Library.
