How to search for a library book online

The catalogue contains all BU library owns, and it's a quick way to search for books and multimedia that you can borrow. 

  • Search by title - you can put a comma and then the author's surname to narrow it down, for example Tale of two cities, Dickens
  • Narrow down by date - you can adjust the date range of all your results in the filters on the left hand side
  • Narrow down by location -  you can narrow down to one of the 2 libraries, or select 'ebooks' to only see online content.
