How does Get It it work?

  • Begin with HOLLIS to find books and more at Harvard's 70 libraries
  • Available at Harvard? Visit the library and get it from the shelf if you need it right away. If you can wait 1 - 3 days, look for a "Request Pick Up" link in HOLLIS to have the book delivered to Gutman or another Harvard library.
  • Use Scan & Deliver to request copies of articles or chapters from materials available at Harvard
  • Not available at Harvard?
    • Use Borrow Direct to request books not available at Harvard directly from partner libraries at other schools
    • Use Interlibrary Loan to get copies of articles, or books not available through Borrow Direct
