Access to your BU Libraries Search account requires a user name and Kerberos password. A visit on site will be necessary to establish access. Alumni graduating pre-2010 need to:

  • get an alumni card
  • bring the card to the IS&T Help Center (1st floor, Mugar) to create a new username/password combination
  • go to a BU library circulation desk to be entered into the new system

If you graduated in the class of 2011 or later, simply login with your full email address and Kerberos password.
