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 theĀ Interlibrary Loan Request Form instead.

Ask Medical Library staff for assistance if you have questions.
