Finding Books

Use the search box on the home page to search HOLLIS or HOLLIS Classic to locate books at any Harvard library.  HOLLIS describes more than 14 million volumes. There is a link to HOLLIS in the top right-hand corner of all of the library's web pages.

See HOLLIS vs. HOLLIS Classic: Which One to Choose? for more information, and a video, about the two catalogs.

Note that some materials are located at the Harvard Depository, a large, off-campus storage facility. Many of these items can be requested online through the HOLLIS Catalogs; other items will need to be requested through the library that owns the item. Items are generally delivered and available within one business day of a request.

If you don't find what you are looking for at Harvard, see Books Beyond Harvard.
