Pardon Our Dust

In anticipation of future renovations, the library has removed several thousand print books and journals over the summer that were in poor condition, obsolete, or otherwise no longer useful for JBU students. We think you will agree with us that it is much easier to find the books you really need on our less crowded shelves. Please be patient with us as we continue to shift and review the books in our collection during the coming academic year, and as always feel free to ask a library staff member if you're having trouble finding something you need in the library.

We welcome recommendations for new library acquisitions! Faculty, please use this form; students and staff, please email us
