Mail Delivery Service

What is mail delivery, and who can request it?

Tufts Arts, Sciences & Engineering faculty, staff, students and affiliates can request library materials from the Tisch, Lilly, and SMFA circulating collections to be delivered to them by UPS. This service is meant to serve users who cannot come to campus to pick up their own requests during this time of COVID-19.

We are limited in providing this service to only mailing addresses in the continental United States (which excludes Alaska and Hawaii). Because of issues with customs and the expense involved, we cannot ship to international destinations.

How do I request mail delivery?

Begin by searching for a title in JumboSearch. Once you have located your desired title, you should click on the Get It! button. You will then want to select Request Item. If you have requested items before, you will discover that there is a new destination available: Home Delivery. That is the option you will want to use for mail delivery.

Once we have prepared your items for delivery, we will email you to ask you for your current mailing address, phone number, and email. We need this information to create a shipment for you in UPS. We will save your contact information in your library account until the end of the semester in order to facilitate any future deliveries we make to you. If your contact information changes at any point, please contact us at before you make your next request.
