Happy fall everyone! As is always the case, we’ve been working hard over the summer to improve our ever growing collection, and to bring you the latest titles in Health Sciences. We’ve also added quite a number of Leisure Reading books to the newly expanded bay on the 4th floor of Sackler. Here are a few of the most recent titles to come in:
Please let us know if there is a book out there that you think we should own, by recommending a purchase!

Have you heard of Dental Central? It’s a hub for community members to view or broadcast community and cultural events to enhance dental public health.
If you are a member of TUSDM’s community, check it out for volunteering opportunities or to post your own upcoming event in need of volunteers. This is also the place to order outreach supplies like toothbrushes.
If you’re a member of another group on the health sciences campus, consider which of your upcoming events could benefit from the inter-professional presence and assistance of TUSDM community members and consider posting them there.
Also be sure to check out Dental Central’s two hashtags #tusdm and #dentalcentral.
Safely stored in the Special Collections Room of the Hirsh Health Sciences Library, is this haunting Civil War surgical kit. Gift of Dr. Murry L. Shipp, M’39, it was made between the years of 1858-1865 right here in Boston by Codman & Shurtleff Surgical Instruments on Tremont Street. This kit contains all its original tools and is remarkably preserved. Should you wish to see it in person and hold a piece of history in your hands, just ask a librarian or an assistant for directions. We’ll provide the white gloves off-course.
September 19 – 23 is National Postdoc Appreciation Week (or NPAW, which is a great acronym).
Last year, Tufts had ~190 postdocs working in a variety of disciplines in Boston, Grafton and Medford. Almost half of those postdocs were here on the Health Sciences Campus, so chances are you know a postdoc! Take this opportunity to thank them for their tireless hard work and dedication to research.

We want to tell you about some recent changes to pay-for-print here at the Hirsh Library.
First, you may have noticed that we now have several new laser printers! Yeah!
Second, what you may not have noticed, is that there has also been a change made to how you send documents to the printers at the Hirsh Library.
When you send a document to the printer, you will now be asked to provide your Tufts User Name (i.e. jsmith01) and then create a name for the print job.
If you use a Guest Card, you will enter the 9-digit number printed on the front of the card and then create a name for the print job.
This what you will see when you send a document to the printer:
When you swipe your ID (or Guest Card) to release your print job, you will only see your print job listed. This means no more scrolling through other people’s print jobs!
If you have any questions about the changes to pay-for-print, please don’t hesitate to let us know at: email@example.com
The semester just started but we know you’re already hard at work! Take a moment to stretch your legs and join us down at the Library Service at 2:30pm on Wednesday for a quick study break. Have a cup of tea, a snack, and enjoy a chat with your fellow students!
Did you know that there’s a librarian at Hirsh just for you?
The Hirsh Library Liaison Program provides a ‘point-person’ for each of the academic programs and clinical departments on the Tufts’ health sciences campus.
What can a librarian liaison do for you? For starters,your librarian liaison can help you:
- identify resources for your particular topic, especially resources beyond article databases
- create effective and efficient search strategies for databases like PubMed and Web of Science
- discern what tool is right for you to help manage your citations (i.e., EndNote, Zotero, Mendeley) and providing instructions to get you started
- track down statistical data for research projects and help you manage your own data
Find out who’s the librarian liaison for you program and then get in touch with them!

A very warm welcome to all of our new students! We hope that classes are off to a good start and that you are making yourself comfortable and getting into a good routine. The library can answer any questions you might still have so just stop by the desk and ask!
If orientation seems like a blur, here are some of the more salient points about the library:
- You can check things out! Laptops, phone chargers, skulls, models, and more! Oh, and books of course.
- Librarians are here to help! And each school has their own liaison librarian- do you know who your librarian is?
- The library has Open Workshops throughout the school year so you can learn new skills.
- The library also hosts fun events, just so you can have fun.
- Printing is done by adding money (Jumbocash) to your student I.D. card. $0.10/page B&W, $0.15/page double-sided, and $0.30/page for color.
- The IT desk can help with many tech issues you might have and can install software on your computer.
- Ask away! That’s what we at the library service desk are here for.
We look forward to seeing you around the library!
