We hope you’re enjoying running your searches and managing your research and library account using JumboSearch, Tufts Libraries’ one-stop shop to search for books and e-books, videos, articles, digital media, and more.
Because JumboSearch does so much, and is a big change from the library catalogs you may be accustomed to using, we’ve built custom Search Help, by Tufts Librarians, for Tufts Users! You can find the link on the top menu of every JumboSearch page.
If you’re stuck searching for books on Reserve for your class, struggling to find a particular journal or a book, wishing to explore the holdings of the Tufts Digital Library, or wondering how to explore the collection in your local Tufts library, our Search Help is here to…help.
Of course, if you run into trouble using JumboSearch you can always stop by the Library Service Desk on Sackler 4, give us a call at 617-636-6705, shoot us an email at email@example.com, text us at 617-477-8439, or chat us up!
Looking for additional EBD learning opportunities to help you with your PICO assignment or your BaSiCSsss presentation? Want to brush up on your techniques? Have we got the Research Guide for you!

Still have questions? Ask us! Use one of the methods below to contact a librarian, schedule a consultation or stop by the desk.
For those working on BaSiCSsss presentations, don’t forget to reach out to your group librarian.

It’s that time again! The end of the semester is nigh and with it research projects, final exams and group assignments are looming. Feeling overwhelmed? Desperate? Don’t know where how or where to start? The Hirsh Library’s librarian Liaison Program can help!
The Hirsh Library’s Liaison Program provides a ‘point-person’ for the academic programs and clinical departments on the Tufts’ health sciences campus. What can your librarian liaison do for you?
For starters, your librarian liaison can help you:
- identify resources for your particular topic, especially resources beyond article databases
- create effective and efficient search strategies for databases like PubMed and Web of Science
- discern what tool is right for you to help manage your citations (i.e., EndNote, Zotero, Mendeley) and providing instructions to get you started
- track down statistical data for research projects and help you manage your own data
Sounds pretty great, right? It is! Now, go find out who’s you librarian liaison and then get in touch with them!
And one more thing – if you are preparing for dental, medical or physician assistance board exams, then you must check out the following Hirsh Library guides:
