To obtain access to ATLASerials®, it is first necessary to register with the Office of Development and External Relations.  Please send an email to alums@hds.harvard.edu that includes your full name and degree year. After a member of the staff has verified that you are a graduate of the School, you will be sent login information to access the database.  Please contact a research librarian for assistance in using ATLASerials®.

Access to ATLASerials® is for alumni personal use only. Alumni may not share access with others.

Additional e-journals and other licensed e-resources are available for consultation only onsite in the library. Please contact a research librarian for assistance. Remote access to these additional licensed e-resources is not available. Please note the many college and university libraries, large public libraries, and public libraries in consortia have access to many of these same licensed e-resources. The library has prepared a list of selected e-resources for HDS alumni that are available remotely.
