Visiting Other Libraries

UMass Boston belongs to three different library consortia, which include many of the academic libraries in the Boston area and beyond.

Periodically throughout the academic year, other schools may offer limited hours for library visitor access. Please call the member library in question to confirm their visitor access hours before making a special trip. You may also Ask a Librarian for assistance with planning your visit to another library.
