Scheduling a Visit

We welcome everyone to use Burns Library collections. We are best prepared to facilitate your visit and ensure materials are available when we know you are coming.

All independent researchers (anyone who does not have a currently active BC Eagle ID number, including alumni) are required to make an appointment prior to visiting. Current Boston College faculty, staff, and students are not required to make an appointment prior to visiting Burns Library.

You can request an appointment during the process of searching for materials in the Library Catalog or the Search Burns Archives Finding Aids. Should you not know what materials you would like to view, but would still like an appointment, please reach out to us via our Contact Us page so we can assist you.
