Requesting Books

Fletcher students can request books from any Tufts library through the online library catalog, JumboSearch.

Requesting Books

  1. Log into your library account with your Tufts credentials.
  2. Search the library catalog (JumboSearch) for the book you want.
  3. Once you’ve found a book you want to borrow, click its title. Next to Request Options, click Request Item and select the pickup location.

Picking Up Books

You’ll get an email telling you when your requested books are ready to pick up.

To pick up your books, come to the library with your Tufts ID during our opening hours and tell the circulation desk staff you have books on hold.

If you do not pick up your books within 7 days, we will return them to the stacks. 

Checking Request Status

You can check the status of your book requests at any time by logging into your library account and looking in the Requests section.

If you have any questions, need to make alternative arrangements, or no longer need books you have requested, please email us at
