Charles River Campus Intra-Library Request

Students, faculty and staff of the Schools of Medicine, Dental Medicine, Public Health and the Boston Medical Center may use the Charles River Campus Intra-Library Request form to request loanable materials available within the BU Library System, but not owned by the Alumni Medical Library.

Requests normally take 7-14 business days to fill (Monday-Friday). No rush requests are available. There is no charge for this service.

This form may be used to request a book or a copy of a journal article held by another BU library: the item will be delivered to the Medical Library, and can be picked up at the Circulation Desk. Books can be checked out for the usual circulation period, and may be returned to the Medical Library. Copies of articles are yours to keep.

Any loanable item may be requested, but be aware that some items, including Reserve materials, issues and bound volumes of some journals, microfilms, etc., do not circulate outside their home libraries, and may not be
available for delivery using this form. If you need an item that is not owned by any Boston University library, please use BU WorldCat Local or theĀ Interlibrary Loan Request Form instead.

Ask Medical Library staff for assistance if you have questions.

  • Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions

    The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.
    Under certain conditions specified in the Law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement.
    This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgement, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of Copyright Law.
