Medford and Somerville teachers

Active teachers in the Medford or Somerville School Districts may register for a library account. This allows you to borrow physical books, scores, and DVDs but does not grant access to databases, interlibrary loans, or equipment.

Registering as a Medford or Somerville teacher

Please bring a letter requesting your library privileges to the Information and Circulation Desk at Tisch Library. The letter must be on your school's letterhead and signed by your principal. Your account will be valid for one year. 

Borrowing materials

As a teacher in Medford or Somerville, you can borrow physical books, scores, DVDs, and CDs at Tisch Library and its branches. For more information on loan length, please visit our Loan and Renewal Period section.

As a Medford/Somerville Teacher Account, you are responsible for your own material, including loaning and returning. 

Interlibrary loan and database access

Unfortunately, Medford or Somerville teachers cannot use our interlibrary loan service. Please check with your local public library for interlibrary loan services.

Medford or Somerville teachers cannot access databases (Proquest, JSTOR, etc) or other subscription content (like specific journals) off-campus. Teachers may be able to access this content on-site from a library computer, depending on our licensing agreement with specific content providers.
