Libraries in the twenty-first century remain as intellectual laboratories for scholars and students. Yet the tools and modes for knowledge work are evolving. The Tisch Library is an adaptive space, seeking to accommodate and anticipate new learning modes while supporting core and traditional research and study.

Tisch Library serves the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering at Tufts University. The largest of the Tufts Libraries, Tisch Library welcomes and aims to serve the entire Tufts Community as they pursue their teaching, learning and research. Our collections, staff expertise, and physical spaces are extensive.

The Tisch Library building is also the location of several other Tufts resources and offices, including the Digital Collections and Archives, University Library Technology Services, Geographic Information Systems, and several academic classrooms. The history of libraries for the School of Arts and Sciences can be found by viewing key sections of the Concise Encyclopedia of Tufts University. See in particular entries for Eaton Hall (Eaton Memorial Library), Wessell Library, and the Tisch Library entry.
