Welcome to Archives at Tufts

About this Site

Archives at Tufts contains all finding aids for Tufts Archival Research Center. Finding aids describe the creation, content, context, and arrangement of archival materials, allowing users to identify and request materials relevant to their research. Use Archives at Tufts to browse, explore, and discover Tufts’ extraordinary collections of primary sources.

Requesting Materials

Each finding aid contains a link to request materials from the collections. Collections do not circulate outside of the archives and must be used in TARC’s reading room, though scans may also be requested. In some cases the collections are stored off-site and require two business days before they are available for use. Some finding aids contain links to digitized versions of all or parts of a collection, but in most cases viewing a collection in its entirety will require visiting our reading room. Please contact us with any questions about using the collections.
