Tufts University

The Tufts University Libraries offer resources, information and technology across all three of the Tufts campuses in Medford/Somerville, Boston, and Grafton.  Together, the 7 libraries hold more than one million print volumes, in addition to a rich audio-visual collection.  Users have access to more than 70,000 electronic journals, 200,00 electronic books and 400 databases plus a growing collection of historical images and other digital resources unique to Tufts. In addition, the libraries host art exhibitions, speaker series, films and other cultural events. In 2016, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts joined the Tufts School of Arts and Sciences and the W. Van Allen Clark Library is now a branch of Tisch Library.

Tufts University is represented on the Boston Library Consortium Board by the Director of the Tisch Library.
