HOLLIS+ is Harvard’s library catalog. It brings together information about library resources owned or licensed by Harvard. Sign in with your Harvard Key to see licensed digital content, Get It options, and to access your account.
4. Other Sources
To locate scholarly articles about any religious tradition or topic, we recommend using Other Sources, a custom search we've built to complement your HOLLIS+ results.
- Other Sources finds content that does not show up in HOLLIS+.
- Other Sources simultaneously searches several prominent religion databases that don't share information with HOLLIS+ -- Academic Search Premier, ATLA Religion Database with ATLASerials, ATLA Catholic Periodical and Literature Index, Bibliography of Asian Studies, Christian Periodical Index, Index to Jewish Periodicals, Index Islamicus, New Testament Abstracts, Old Testament Abstracts, and Philosopher's Index.
6. Harvard Library Bookmarklet
Lots of sites hosting journal articles and other online resources keep their content locked behind firewalls. If you find an article through a Google search, instead of a library database, you get locked out.
The Harvard Library Proxy Bookmarklet is a browser app that solves that problem, making sure you can still get access to all the articles and resources the Library licenses.
7. "Find it @ Harvard"
When you there is no full text for a citation you find in a database, click on the Find it @ Harvard link to automatically locate electronic and print copies of the article.
8. Get It Services
In HOLLIS+, click the Scan & Deliver link to request scans of portions of certain items from library collections currently on library shelves. Use the Request Item link to get eligible items delivered to a Harvard library of your choice. If a book is unavailable for any reason, use Borrow Direct to request a copy from another library. If you need something that Harvard doesn’t own, request it through Interlibrary Loan.
9. Citation Tools
Tools like RefWorks and Zotero organize book and article references in one or more virtual folders. From these references, you’re able to produce instant notes and bibliographies in a citation style of your choice. Most library databases, including HOLLIS+, will format results as citations.
For information about Harvard-supported citation tools and trainings, see Research Management and Citation Tools at Harvard.
10. Chargers, Flash Drives, and other useful things
We have flash drives, iPhone, iPad and Android chargers, Apple laptop adapters, and earphones. You may borrow any device for up to 3 hours. Inquire at the circulation desk.
