Welcome: The Library Landscape at Harvard

Welcome to the Hutchins Center, to Harvard University, and to the Harvard Libraries -- from wherever you are living and working in these extraordinary times.  

During your residency this year, we'll be happy to meet up in person in Widener Library or online, via Zoom

Either way, you'll have extraordinary access to our collections and archives. Moreover, at your fingertips will be what's arguably the Harvard Library's most important asset: its people. A vast and varied community of librarians, with language, subject, and technological expertise, are ready to work with you at any and every stage of your fellowship experience.

This guide is an effort to smooth the way for you as your Fellowship begins and help you make the most of your experience here at Harvard.

We wish you good health and a productive Fellowship experience and we invite you to be in touch!
