Library Resources

Andover-Harvard Theological Library can help you during this period of remote teaching and learning in multiple ways.

For help with course readings in Canvas, contact reserves@hds.harvard.edu.
You can also ask here whether electronic access to a particular course textbook is available. NOTE: Some materials temporarily available electronically through HathiTrust are still in copyright and so are restricted to one user at a time for one hour at a time. More information about using these materials is available here.

For questions about print collections, contact circulation@hds.harvard.edu.
Access to print collections is returning in phases. For the latest information on services such as Scan & Deliver and Book Pickup, see the Harvard Library Coronavirus page.

For research help, contact research@hds.harvard.edu.
Research Services staff can help you use the online databases most effectively, find digital versions of print materials you need for research or coursework, schedule demonstrations of subject-specific library resources for classes or sections, use Zotero citation manager and other popular bibliographical tools, get answers to copyright questions, take advantage of open-access opportunities, and much more.

For special collections, contact specialcollections@hds.harvard.edu. Staff can consult physical items on your behalf, fulfill requests for scans, and help you teach remotely with special collections.
