Undergraduate Thesis Assistance

Tisch Library actively supports undergraduate thesis research. Students are encouraged to meet with librarians individually in order to gain an increased awareness of relevant library resources, and learn how to use them as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Take our 8-week mini-course EXP 19: Research 4 Success: Using the Library for Thesis and Capstone Projects.

NOTE: As of Fall 2015, EXP 19 is on hiatus while it is redesigned. In the meantime please complete an appointment request form below and a research librarian will meet with you.

Meet with a librarian

Reference librarians all have areas of expertise; see our staff directory to make an appointment with a reference librarian who specializes in your subject area.

If you aren't sure who to contact, complete the appointment request form, and a librarian will contact you.

You may also wish to attend one of our drop-in workshops.

Getting materials from other libraries

Tufts is a member of the Boston Library Consortium. You can apply for a BLC card at the circulation desk, which allows you to visit and borrow books from BLC member libraries. You may also use the WorldCat to search for books and request that they be sent to Tisch Library for you to check out.

If titles you're looking for aren't in the BLC Virtual Catalog, use ILLiad, our nationwide interlibrary loan network .

If you have any questions about requesting materials from other libraries, chat, stop by, call, or e-mail the reference desk. The librarians will be happy to assist you.
