mySearch is an interface which allows you to search across a range of library resources simultaneously, including books, e-books, journal articles and databases
We offer a request service called Inter Library Loans for items not held in our own print or electronic collections. It is mainly for staff and postgraduate students and for undergraduate students working on a major project or dissertation at Level 6 (Level H).
For more information on how to request an item via Inter Library Loans, click here.
We recommend using mySearch for your initial search and to find books.
To search deeper into BU Library's e-resources, you need to access and search within individual databases. Choose the 'EbscoHost Databases' link (Coming soon) to search most - but not all - databases in one go. Some databases are specialist (e.g. law and company and industry subjects) and need to be searched individually.
This video explains why you should use Library resources rather than relying on Google for researching for your assignments.
