We are still offering consultation services during the COVID-19 move to online instruction. Please feel free to reach out for virtual appointments! For more information on library services and resources, please click here.
The Northeastern University Libraries have partnerships with libraries in the Boston area and across the country to help you access the research materials you need. You can visit some of these partner libraries yourself (see "What is the BLC?" box to the left) or use our various borrowing services for pick-up at Snell Library, or in some cases, electronic delivery. If we don't have it, we'll try to get it for you!
Use this page to familiarize yourself with the various options available to the Northeastern University community. And of course, contact us if you have any questions.
A question that we are often asked is: Can I look at this at Harvard?
The answer is: maybe. There are many libraries at Harvard University and each one has a different policy for visitors. Some will allow access to outside researchers with a valid ID (such as the ID from another university), some require a fee. Please check the access policy of the particular library you wish to visit before you go!
