Hours and Directions

Due to ongoing University construction work, July 19 through August 31, 2016, offsite retrievals may be unavailable or experience substantial delay. Please contact us at 617-627-3737 or to schedule and arrange your Reading Room visit.


The Digital Collections and Archives (DCA) Reading Room is open Monday through Friday from 9 am – 4 pm, except on University Holidays.

While no appointment is necessary, calling ahead will allow DCA staff to retrieve materials in advance and have them ready in the Reading Room when you arrive. Paging from the stacks ends at 3:30 p.m. each day. Retrieval from offsite storage requires two business days.



The DCA is located on Level G of the Tisch Library Building on Tufts University’s Medford Campus.

Getting to Campus

Tufts University’s main campus is located on the Medford/Somerville line just north of Boston, Massachusetts. The campus is easily accessible by public transportation or by car. Complete directions are available through the Tufts University website.
