Accessing Libraries Beyond Ginn
Fletcher students, faculty and staff have access to all of the Tufts Libraries and
can borrow materials from them with their Fletcher ID. Ginn Library
and Tisch Library have complementary collections (searched through
one unified catalog) so it is likely that you will find useful
material in the Tisch Library collection as well as at Ginn.
Fletcher students and faculty may obtain a Harvard College Libraries Special
Borrowers card from the Privileges Office at Widener Library (hours vary, see Widener's website
for more information). This card allows one
to borrow materials from many of the Harvard Libraries, including Widener,
the Kennedy School, the Law School, and Lamont. Members of the Fletcher community also have access
to the Baker Library (Business School) and the Gutman Library (Graduate
School of Education) with their Fletcher ID, but do not have borrowing privileges
at those libraries.
Please see the Reference Librarian for more information. A list
Harvard Libraries with hours and maps is available on their
