Get Started with Access for Tufts Students, Faculty, and Staff

Access and Registration

Those with a permanent Tufts University picture ID are automatically registered with the library and assigned a Tufts Username used to access library e-resources such as databases and electronic journals, email, Canvas, and other Tufts accounts. 

Affiliated faculty, residents, and fellows need an academic appointment in order to obtain a Tufts account. Please contact your department manager, chair, or preceptor for information on how to obtain an appointment through the Office of Faculty Affairs.

Entrance to the building after 7:00 PM is by swipe access only.

Call the Library Service Desk at 617-636-6705 or email if you have questions about your access to Tufts University Hirsh Health Sciences Library e-resources.
