Using the library
As an Affiliate scholar, you have full access to the collections and services of Tisch Library and its branches.
As an affiliate, you can check out books and scores for 90 days, with the option to renew up to 18 months. DVDs and CDs can be borrowed for 14 days with renewals up to 1 month.
You are responsible for any items checked out using your library account; it is not recommended that you check out materials on someone else's behalf. We are happy to hold items for up to 48 hours if you need to come back with an ID.
You may request items via Interlibrary loan. Registering for an Interlibrary loan account is different for visiting scholars. Please contact our Interlibrary Loan team for information on how to register for your ILLiad account.
You will have access to the same online resources as Tufts faculty and students. If you need help with any resources, please Ask Us!
