The Hirsh Health Sciences Library (HHSL) is the primary library of Tufts’ health sciences campus in Boston. The library maintains collections in medicine, dental medicine, nutrition, veterinary medicine and supporting collections in the basic sciences. In addition to a rich array of electronic and print journals and books, the library offers classrooms, conference rooms, individual and group study rooms and a café for Tufts and Tufts-affiliated faculty, students and staff.

HHSL subscribes to nearly 1,000 print journals and 2,000 electronic journals, and addresses the information needs of education, research, medicine and management for the Boston Health Sciences campus, the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, and the Tufts Medical Center Hospitals. Members of the Tufts community can access many of these resources directly online. A few of its services include computer support, laptop loans, wireless computing, and online course management through TUSK (Tufts University Sciences Knowledgebase).
