Libraries and Collections

Across our campuses, Tufts’ seven libraries with over 1.2 million volumes and comprehensive digital collections provide essential resources, information, and technology to bring the world’s scholarship to Tufts and Tufts’ scholarship to the world. Tufts Libraries help students and faculty develop and hone the skills needed to navigate the dynamic information landscape and contribute to knowledge in all its forms.
