BU Libraries Search retrieves many more formats than just our physical items, so it is important to remember that the process is "search first; limit later".
For books, enter your search terms (a title, author — any combination is fine). Then use Filter My Results in the right column. Under Material Types, click Books/eBooks. If you only want print books on the shelf (but not eBooks or print books that are currently checked out), under Availability, click Available in Library.
The record will display the call number as well as availability. Click on the access/availability statement to find additional copies, access online materials or request unavailable materials.
