Q. What materials can't I borrow via interlibrary loan?

  Aug 30, 2019

Most libraries will not lend non-circulating materials such as: periodicals; reference books; rare and early books and newspapers (unless available in microform); sound and video recordings; films; and materials with controlled distribution, such as standardized tests.

If you have​ any questions about what you can request, we recommend contacting the Interlibrary Loan department by calling 617-353-3706 or emailing ILLMML@bu.edu.
