Visiting HKS/Harvard? Harvard alumni can request a Library Borrowing Card, which will allow you to visit most Harvard libraries (depending on COVID restrictions) and borrow physical materials free of charge. When coming to campus show your library borrower card along with a photo ID to Security at Wexner to be able to enter the building. You can also access electronic resources from the guest computers in the HKS Library. The latest information can be found at Use Harvard Library as an Alum
