Visit Burns Library



Planning a Visit to Burns Library
Burns Library is closed until further notice as part of Boston College's coronavirus response. Virtual reference services remain available but are necessarily limited by lack of staff access to physical collections during the closure. We will do our best to meet researcher needs, prioritizing support for online instruction at Boston College.

Tell Us Your Story: The Boston College University Archives invites all members of the BC community to contribute their stories documenting life in a time of pandemic. Help us preserve your unique records of the COVID-19 experience for future use in research and teaching.

Upcoming Events


In keeping with Boston College policies in response to the COVID-19/coronavirus emergency, Burns Library has canceled all events through the end of the Spring 2020 semester. We urge everyone in our community to take all appropriate precautions to protect the health and safety of themselves and those around them.

We will explore rescheduling canceled events and offering new events once it becomes feasible to do so. We invite you to refer back to this page for more information and to join our mailing list so that you may receive event announcements and invitations directly via email.
