From your search results, click on a title and the details will slide into view. Next, look for "Get It," "View Online," or "Find It @ Harvard."
If you see View Online, it means there is likely an electronic copy available.
View Online does its best to connect many very different library systems. Often, it takes you right to the full-text. Sometimes, it will take you somewhere unexpected. If you end up somewhere that looks like a database and has a search box, try searching there for the title of the item. If in doubt, Ask a Librarian for help tracking down the source.
Find It @ Harvard
If you see "Find It @ Harvard," it means HOLLIS can't tell right away if there is a copy available. Click "Find It @ Harvard" to search our online resources, and then follow the prompts to search the catalog.
Find It @ Harvard does its best to connect different library systems with the information it knows how to use (usually an ISBN or ISSN). If Find It fails, you can often get what you want, either online or in paper form, by examining the citation yourself. For example, if you're looking for an article or book chapter and Find It fails, try searching HOLLIS for the journal or book title.
Pro tip: In the original record, look for "Is part of" to find the title to search for in HOLLIS.
If you see "Get It," it means the library owns at least one physical copy. (In your results list, you will see "Available" or "Currently unavailable.") Click on a library name to see availability.
Note: if the library holds many volumes, you may need to click "show more items" to see the full list.
If you are going to the shelf
The call number is the most important piece of information. Floor and row numbers are currently unavailable.
Pro tip: you can text yourself a call number. Look for this option in the "Send to" menu.
If you’d like the item delivered
Make sure you are signed in so all of your options will display. Look for: "Request Item," "Scan & Deliver," "Borrow Direct" and "Get It" (for Interlibrary Loan). See Get It for more information about these options.
