Critical Conversations: Getting Your Book

Getting Your Book


While we will try to provide materials to electronic resources through Harvard Library's HOLLIS Catalog many publishers will release only a limited number of seats on their electronic platforms for reading an e-book.  In this case, please do check back to see if a book has been returned.  For folks in the local area, Harvard Library is also lending hard copies from the collection.  Look for the "Request Pick Up" link in HOLLIS.

Consider donating your book to the Prison Book Program  ( 1970 in Quincy, MA) and share books with those who are so cut off from information and reading.

“As a librarian at Harvard (20+ million books!) with the ability to find just about any book anyone could want, I thought,  why not  share Harvard’s books with those who are so cut off from information and reading, who really need access to books.”   Lee Sullivan, Harvard Librarian and volunteer at Prison Book Program.
