Hours and Directions

Please note that the DCA Reading Room will be closed Monday, August 17-Friday, August 21. The Reading Room will resume its regular schedule on Monday, August 24, 2015.


The Digital Collections and Archives (DCA) Reading Room is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Staff will return all materials to the stacks at 3:45pm.

We are unable to retrieve materials from our stacks after 3:30 p.m. each day. Because some materials are stored off-site and require one business day for delivery, researchers are encouraged to contact the DCA prior to visiting.

The Reading Room is closed on University Holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.



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.
