Welcome to the History Research Guide for the Harvard Kennedy School!
This guide provides an overview of resources for historical research for HKS students and faculty who may not be engaged in in-depth archival work but would like to undertake policy research from a historically informed perspective. It does not aspire to be exhaustive, and it focuses primarily on twentieth-century and contemporary history. For a much more detailed guide, check the History Guide provided by the FAS Libraries.
For questions about research on historical topics, please do not hesitate to contact one of your HKS librarians.
