Books Beyond Tufts

To locate books in other libraries when we either don't own them or our copy is checked out, use BLC WorldCat. Once you've found the book you want, use the BLC request form or ILLiad to request the book be delivered to Tisch.  The book will be delivered to the Tisch Library circulation desk, within 2 to 5 days, and you will be notified via email on its arrival. There is no charge for this service.

Using subject headings to search for books

Books & e-books are assigned official subject headings by librarians.  Subject headings can be useful when how a topic has been described has changed over time or if you are searching for concepts in more than one language. Some examples of subject headings:

Using a combination of keyword terms and subject headings often returns more specific (and hopefully useful) results than just using keywords.  For more recently published books, it will also return results that match chapter titles, which is useful if you're looking at an edited collection.
