To all the new residents on campus, welcome to Tufts’ Boston campus. We’re just around the corner from the Boston Garden, AMC Loews Movie Theater, Boston Opera House, Primark and don’t even get us started on the food.

The library service desk is located on the 4th floor by the Food for Thought Cafe. Come visit us, we’re happy to help you check out books, laptops, chargers, and anatomical models. Doing research and not getting the results you’re looking for? Stop by to meet with an on call librarian or select your favorite way to contact us from our home page.

Don’t forget to watch for your username and password — it will be coming in the mail sometime in the fall.

It’s our favorite time of year! Yes, that’s right. It’s turkey time!

Starting at 12pm this Thursday 11/17 and Friday 11/18, you can stop by the Library Service Desk and create your own feathered friend to bring home to Mom (or back to your study carrel). We’ll have a variety of materials out so you can create anything your heart desires, from the simple and majestic hand turkey (our personal favorite) to some 3D  pinecone poultry.

HirshTurkey

Don’t have time to delve into a craft?

Just lend a hand–we only need the outline!–to the giant library turkey we plan to make.

See you there!
