An almost complete collection of course catalogs from 1913-current are available online to the public through the Internet Archive. A small number of catalogs have only recently been discovered and are not yet digitized, and therefore can only be accessed in person. Catalogs between 2012-2015 exist in both print and digital forms; catalogs post-2015 are digital, only (see the special note about course catalogs from 2012-present). Please contact the Harvard Chan Archivist with questions or to donate a missing catalog.
In 2012, the Harvard Chan School began their transition away from a printed, paper-based course catalog in favor of a digital database. The earliest years of the digital catalog (2012-2015) were unable to be exported as individual academic years. As a work-around, a single PDF file was generated that spans 2012-2021 (as the file was created in 2021). A complete list of all available holdings (print and digital) are given above.
Our team recommends that users interested in accessing digital course catalog for AYs 2012-2015 use the Summer 2012 - Spring 2021 catalog. Users can also make an appointment in our reading room to see the print copies of AYs 2012-2015.
For AY 2015 onward, please consult the individual digital catalogs linked above.
