Recently, the Tufts University libraries banded together and instituted an entirely new way to order books from within our library system. You no longer have to log into ILLiad to order a book from Tisch, Ginn, Vet, or any of the other Tufts University libraries – for now on, it’s is as easy as 1-2-3!

Step 1: Once you’ve searched the catalog and found the book is only at one of the other libraries, click the “Request Item” button at the top of the page.Request Book

 

Step 2: Log in, using either your UTLN or your Tufts barcode info.Log In Screen

 

Step 3: Make sure your location on the drop-down menu says “Hirsh Health Sciences Library,” add a date if it’s a dated request (for instance, if it’s for a research paper, and won’t be any use after the paper’s due date passes), and click Submit. You’re done!Submit

You’re all set! If the book is available, then your request will generally show up in around 2 – 3 business days. Feel free to visit the desk or call us at 617.636.6706 if you have any questions or run into any problems.

Happy requesting!

Frequently Asked Questions about Interlibrary Loan Fees and Payment

  • Will I be charged?
    • Faculty and staff in the Tufts community are charged $4 per request (e.g., journal article, book, etc.) for items in the Hirsh Health Sciences Library collection or from a library outside of Tufts.  Students are allotted 20 free requests per academic year.
  • Will I get an invoice?
    • That depends.  If there is a charge for your ILLiad request, you will receive an email in the month following the completion of your request with the invoice attached.  Alternatively, if debiting a Tufts deptID, you can setup automatic payments and receive no invoices directly.
  • How do I pay these invoices?
    • Payments can be made by credit card (no Tufts Pcards), or (U.S.) check made out to Tufts Hirsh Health Sciences Library and brought in-person/mailed to:

Document Delivery Department
Tufts University Hirsh Health Sciences Library
145 Harrison Avenue
Boston, MA 02111

  • How do I pay using a Tufts DeptID?
    • Log into ILLiad and add the Tufts DeptID and account number information in the ‘Payment and Profile’ section. Then, when completing an ILLiad request form, select the account, and payment will automatically be made for that request and you will not receive an invoice soliciting payment.
