Finding Books: Two Basic Searches

Jumbosearch

  • Tufts library catalog + 150 million articles
  • incudes results from the majority of databases Tisch subscribes to

BLC Worldcat

  • books, videos, etc. owned by partners and libraries worldwide
  • click a button to have a book delivered here
  • use when you know what book you're looking for, but you're not sure if we have it at Tisch

Books in JumboSearch

You can limit your JumboSearch results to include only books by selecting Books under the heading marked Resource Type in the Refine My Results menu on the left side of the results page.

Find the book in the library

Use the Library Floorplans to determine where in the stacks your book is located. Look for the letter combination that begins your book's call number on the map to figure out where to go.

Serendipity in the Stacks: Browse by Call Number

One of the best ways to discover the perfect source for your project is to browse the library stacks by call number range. Each call number range represents a particular subject and all of the books on the same topic will be located in the same general area on the shelves. So if you want a book on Cicero, go to the call number range beginning with PA6278 to see what we have!
