Your BU ID card is your library card

Go to the Andruss Library Circulation Desk (1st floor) to:

  • Check out books (loan period is 6 weeks)
  • Borrow course reserves - materials that a professor has placed on reserve for a class to read
  • Ask for research assistance
  • Request a video, CD, or DVD to check out
  • Pick up items from Interlibrary Loan (ILL) or EZBorrow (PALCI)
  • Borrow headphones for in-library use
  • Ask about other services, like color printing, laminating, faxing, and making transparencies
