Reference Help

Reference & Instruction Services at Burns Library

Our reference team is happy to assist your research. We strongly encourage you to search the library catalog to get more information on items you might wish to use. For more on this, see Finding Burns Material. To  get help navigating our catalog and finding aids, or to request a more in-depth consultation with our reference staff, please send us an email.  We are also available at 617-552-4861.

If you are planning to use our materials, please view our reading room policies for general information for researchers. Be sure to check our hours when planning a visit. 

If you cannot visit us in person, we’re happy to provide assistance. We can provide reference help and fulfill scan requests, but, due to staff limitations, we are not able to provide in-depth research.
