The following is a brief introduction to the various types of student-authored works held by the Library. Over the years, there have been changes in written work requirements for HLS degrees, changes in Library collection practices, and also changes in the way these items are described in the HOLLIS catalog. For instance, many early third year papers are designated as theses in the catalog, and early LL.M. papers are described only as student papers. For these reasons, the linked lists of documents listed in this guide may not be complete. Best access for any specific paper is by author. In general, using Hollis Classic is better for finding these papers. For assistance locating HLS student papers of any kind, please consult a librarian in the reference department . Note that recently acquired papers may not be fully processed for use. If the catalog record lacks a call number, providing instead only a link to "Availability," please fill out this form to have the item "rush cataloged."
