What is HOLLIS for Archival Discovery?

HOLLIS for Archival Discovery, a companion to HOLLIS, Harvard Library’s online catalog, is the search platform for online finding aids and collection guides.
HOLLIS for Archival Discovery is specifically designed for finding special collections and archival materials. These materials include primary sources in a variety of formats such as letters, memos, photographs, film and video, three-dimensional objects, and digital content. HOLLIS for Archival Discovery allows you to search for archival materials at 30 Harvard repositories.

Please note that not all archival and special collections at Harvard have a finding aid, and are therefore not searchable in HOLLIS for Archival Discovery. To find other materials in special collections, please use HOLLIS.
