Summer Access to the Library

HOLLIS is just the beginning of the library’s summer makeover. The main website (library.harvard.edu) and the Find Databases page are also being redesigned. At the same time, HOLLIS Classic and hcl.harvard.edu will retire. Please share your thoughts and feedback via the online form, or write directly to us if you prefer. Redesigns aside, Harvard’s library resources remain available to you no matter where you are, whether you want to do deep research or just unwind with a streaming film. Here are some tips for taking full advantage:

Install the Harvard Library Bookmarklet or start from HOLLIS or Find Databases to make sure you’re getting HarvardKey access even when you’re not connected to Harvard wifi.

For services that send you .pdfs, it doesn’t matter where you are: help yourself to Scan & Deliver, and Interlibrary Loan requests for chapters and articles.

We’re here to help all summer long: email us or contact ask.library.harvard.edu.

Remember that you are entitled to access AND borrowing privileges at any of our Borrow Direct partner libraries.

If you’d like access to another university’s library, it never hurts to ask. The department to seek out will be called something like “Privileges,” “Access,” or “Admittance.” Public libraries welcome everyone.

If you’re looking for a specific book and want to know where the nearest copy is, just search worldcat.org and then enter your zip code.

Conversations on the Art of Literary Translation

September 28, 2018

Boston University has a long tradition of literary translation. BU’s first lecture series on translation was offered in 1978, at a time before Translation Studies was even a recognized field. Since then, invited speakers from around the world, including many of the most accomplished translators and literary figures of the last half-century, have been guests at the Boston University Literary Translation Seminar. The Seminar has in turn fostered the literary careers of generations of BU students, teaching them the art of translation and bringing them into fruitful contact with established...

September 17, 2018

 This lecture provides an overview of the Catalan education system at the secondary level focusing on how teachers manage language teaching and language-related issues in the classroom.
