How can I get a magazine article if the library doesn’t subscribe to it?
The Reference Department will contact the Boston Public Library, which will do a search for your article. Please give the librarian as much information as possible (Journal Title, Author, date published, and page numbers). This will speed up your request as all requests have to be verified by us before requesting the Boston Public Library search. A Minuteman Library card is necessary to request items. Articles will be sent to the Reference Desk digitally and you will be notified when they are ready to be picked up in hard copy at the reference desk.
