Tracking Stuff Down: Essential Services
Know What We Can Get for You
We'll make a PDF of any journal article that's not available online or up to two chapters from any book in print. Turnaround time is 4 days (and often less).
If Borrow Direct doesn't turn it up, we can cast a wider net to get you what you need.
If our copy is unavailable, we'll get one for you from one of our partner libraries, within 4 business days.
If there is no holding library and the item is a candidate for Harvard Library's collection, you may suggest that we acquire it—whether a book, film, journal, database, etc. Specify the desired format.
Keep Things Organized
This is a free, open-source citation management tool. Zotero make the process of collecting and organizing citations, incorporating them into your paper, and creating a bibliography or works cited page almost entirely stress-free!
It's worth the small investment of time to learn Zotero. A good guide, produced by Harvard librarians, is available here: http://guides.library.harvard.edu/zotero.
