We have a new library entrance beginning Monday, June 3, 2019. This is a temporary entrance for the next 18 months due to the Andover renovation. The new entrance is located on the parking lot side (south side) of Andover Hall. It is across from Vanserg Building and the bike shelter. There is a ramp for wheelchair accessibility. Please have your Harvard ID to gain entrance into the library. Guests will still be able to sign-in with a photograph ID.
Opening December 5, our new exhibit is curated by Freshman Seminar 43D: Christianity and Slavery in America, 1619-1865 taught by Professor Catherine Brekus. On display will be original materials from our Special Collections, as well as reproductions from materials held at other Harvard libraries.

The exhibit will remain on display until March 15, 2019...
