Borrowing worldwide

Interlibrary Loan is a service that supports the research needs of the Tufts community. Tisch Library collaborates with other libraries worldwide to secure needed materials for our researchers and students.

Check the red dots to see where in the world we borrowed materials from. Last year we borrowed 15,477 items for use by our patrons.



77% of the requests we make for physical materials, such as books and videos, are fulfilled within 7 days or less. The vast majority of requests for electronic items, such as journal articles, are available within 48 hours!

We can get what you need quickly.  To place a request or to learn more, please visit our Interlibrary Loan page.
