Borrowing Library Material during the Pandemic

Restrictions on Borrowing

Due to COVID-19, technology (laptops, chargers, dongles) and anatomical models (skulls, teeth, skeletons) are unable to be checked out at this time.

Books Available for Checkout and Loan Periods

Books are available for checkout and may be found using JumboSearch.

For more information on how to renew your library books, visit the Renewing Materials page.

Checking Out Library Books

We have two ways to self-checkout books at Hirsh Health Sciences Library:

Contactless Book Pickup

Hirsh Library has implemented “curbside pickup.” Students, faculty, and staff are able to request books from any Tufts library to be picked up at Hirsh Library during the Medical Education building open hours.

Borrowing Books by Mail

You may also choose to have a book from a Tufts library be mailed to you.

Returning Library Books

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

We are doing our best to get you access to what you need. With staff working mostly remotely, requested scans from books and journals within the library may take longer than usual to fill.
