Ask A Librarian is designed to give quick answers to basic questions about library services and research. We will try to answer your question in the most efficient way possible and direct you to more information that you will find helpful. Examples of the types of questions we get are: "Do you have this journal article?" or "What are the hours of the BU Library?"
If you need more in-depth research assistance, we will refer you to the appropriate person or department.
