Please join us in giving a warm welcome to Andrea Kang, our newest Research & Instruction librarian!

Andrea is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan School of Information where she worked at various parts of the library, including the Digital Preservation Lab, the Asia Library, and the Health Sciences Library. Before that, she taught in South Korea and went to Smith College. She’s excited to return to Boston and join the Tufts community, where she will be the primary outreach liaison to the Sackler School of Biomedical Sciences.

Feel free to say hello if you see her around the library!

“Library in the Medical and Dental School Building”, 1907. From the Tufts Digital Library: http://hdl.handle.net/10427/38004

A big welcome to the TUSM class of 2022 from all of us here at Hirsh Library! We can’t wait to meet you at library orientation today, August 7th, where you’ll get the chance to learn more about the library and all the resources that are available to you. (We’ve had a few renovations since the photo above was taken in 1907). We’re also looking forward to helping you kick off your medical school journey at the PBL Library Skills Workshops that are starting next week!

Your pre-clinical liaison librarian is Christina Heinrich, so don’t hesitate to contact her if you have any questions or need any library help! You can also stop by the Library Service Desk at Sackler 4 to talk to the librarian on call, or Ask Us by email, chat, phone, or text–we’re always happy to help!

We want to extend a warm welcome to the new UG students starting today and a belated but no less enthusiastic welcome to our new PG students! The library has quiet places for studying (and naps), collaboration space, and a café, which means, yes, you can eat and drink here.

  • Have a question? Drop by the Service Desk on the 4th floor and chat to the librarian on call.
  • Want more extended one-on-one help? Schedule an appointment with the dental librarian, Amanda Nevius.
  • Speaking of Amanda, be sure to bookmark the Dental Resources she’s put together for TUSDM. It includes goodies like information on Board and Licensure Exam study resources, how to find Materials Research, and tips on conducting excellent EBD searches.
  • Forget your charger and your phone’s about to die? Check one out at the Service Desk. For that matter, check out a laptop, a VGI cable, model teeth, real skulls, and more!

We wish you nothing but success here at Tufts and everyone at the library looks forward to getting to know you better!

Hello and welcome to all the new residents starting this summer! We are looking forward to meeting you and helping you with any research questions or information needs that you might have. Stop by the Library Service Desk on the 4th floor of the Sackler building to check out materials, get help finding resources, or just to say hello!

Need remote help? Just Ask Us by email, chat, phone, or text!

A quick reminder about library access: at library orientation, you were given a temporary access number, but keep your eyes on your inbox for instructions on setting up your Tufts account and username. That will be your permanent way of accessing library resources from off-campus.

Have additional questions about setting up your Tufts username and password? Contact Tufts Technology Services at 617-627-3376 or at it@tufts.edu and they will be able to assist you.

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.

Please join us in welcoming our newest Research and Instruction Librarian, Christina Heinrich! Christina just moved to Boston from Chicago and has previously worked at the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. She is also a recent graduate of the University of Illinois School of Information. Christina will be the primary outreach liaison to the pre-clinical medical students.  Please say hello if you see her around the library!
