Digital Collections and Archives brings rich, complex history of Tufts to life

Tucked away on the G Floor of Tisch Library is the office of Tufts’ Digital Collections and Archives (DCA), which manages over five terabytes of data and a collection of physical records that would stretch for about two miles if it were laid out in a straight line.
