Due to COVID capacity and distancing restrictions, access to spaces inside the Library is limited. However, works stations in the Convergys Lab and single-user study desks on the Main Floor are available to book by appointment. This is also where you will have access to a photocopier and a printer.
To ensure social distancing, you must make an appointment to book computer workstations, study spots, photocopier, and printer use. You will need to use your BU email address for the appointment. You will then be able to swipe into the Richardson Building and into the Library with your fob or 2020-21 student card at the time of your appointment.
Through September, appointments will be available 8:45 am - 4:45 pm on weekdays, 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm on weekends, and we will extend our operating hours in October.
Many library resources are available online and virtual librarian help is available from 9 am - 5 pm, Monday to Friday. Click the 'Chat' button on the Library homepage for assistance. Closed on weekends.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org when chat is offline. We will respond on the following business day.
