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.

Exploring the Public Domain

These resources include full-text copies of books published before 1923, which is especially useful for books that are currently out of print.

Finding Books in the Library

Below you will see the floor plan of Level 1 which is downstairs and where the majority of the books are shelved.  The books are arranged by call number starting with A and the snaking their way around the floor.  Each stack end is labeled with the first and last call number so all you have to do is figure out if your call number falls between them!  Once you get the idea you won't need a floor plan to find your books.
