Hi there everybody!

Starting on Sunday, October 17th, we will be bringing back the School Affiliation Week. In past years we’ve scattered our days among an entire month, but given the way life is lately we decided it would be best to have it one-and-done, like a disposable face mask at the end of a long day. Here’s how it’s going to work.

From Sunday, October 17th through Saturday, October 23rd, members of the Hirsh Library staff will be walking around 3-4 times a day with a clipboard in hand. We’re going to ask everyone in the library what school/program they’re with (Med, Dental, GSBS, etc). And that’s it. We’ll make a check mark and move on. Afterward – probably sometime in late November (so I have time to analyze and collate), I’ll be posting the data we gather right here on this blog! If you want to see what that looks like, here’s my post from June 2020.

And this is what the survey looks like for us:

If you don’t want people to get too close, or you just don’t want your studying interrupted, you can always leave your ID out, or just write your program down on a piece of paper and leave it next to you. If you’re in a study room, feel free to write down the number of people and their program(s), and tape that to the outside of the study room door (not the window). If you need paper or tape we have them at the desk! Just come ask.

Just please remember to take down any signs you put up, and to remove any IDs or papers you put on the desks by you.

If you have any questions or concerns at all, don’t hesitate to ask us! You can call us at 617-636-6706, e-mail us at hhslcirc@tufts.edu, visit our live chat on the Ask Us page, or even just swing by the desk on the 4th floor and chat to us in person.

Thank you for your assistance with this, and we look forward to a nice smooth Affiliation Week!
