What is the BLC?

The Boston Library Consortium is an association of libraries in New England.  If you're enrolled or working at Tufts, Tisch can issue you a BLC card to use at other libraries. If you're a member of another BLC library, you can use your BLC card here at Tisch.

How can I get a BLC card?

If you're a member of the Tufts community, we can give you a BLC card. The first step is dropping by a service desk and filling out an application. Service desks include:

  • circulation desk (where you check out books)
  • media center (where you check out movies)
  • Room 224
  • music library

Can I search and make requests from BLC libraries?

Use BLCWorldCat. You can see what's in every BLC library and request materials be delivered to Tisch for you. 

Is my library in the BLC?
