With the new term beginning, Hirsh Library has implemented “curbside pickup.”  Students, faculty, and staff are able to request books from any Tufts library to pick up at Hirsh Library during our opening hours.  

In keeping with the University guidelines, if you plan to visit the Library you must observe rules regarding physical distancing, wearing masks, and completing a screening survey prior to arrival. Currently, only Tufts University IDs are permitted into the building. Once you enter the building, you will need to show the security officer a completed Tufts Symptoms survey on your phone (or printed copy).  The survey can be accessed via https://covidscreening.tufts.edu, the Tufts mobile app, or the Healthy @ Tufts portal. You will not be admitted into the building until you have completed this survey and get the All Clear sign. You need to complete the screening survey any day you come to the School. 

Search for and request books through JumboSearch and choose a pickup location. When the request is fulfilled, you’ll get an email saying the book is available for pickup. If you choose another library pickup location other than Hirsh Library to pick books up at, that library may have a different procedure, and you will want to contact them. Books requested to pick up at Hirsh Library will be on the Library Service Desk in a bag labeled with your name and checked out to you for contactless pickup. You will have a week to pick up your item. 

You can renew your books twice by logging into your library account or contacting us from the options below. If you do not pick up your books within a week, they will get checked back in and returned to the owning library. 

Please only take books labeled with your own name. Taking other students’ books would be in violation of the Hirsh Health Sciences Honor Code.
