In order to prepare for the Fall semester and reopening the Reading Room we paused our scan services as of July 30th, the last day we accepted scan requests. Please check back on this page for updates on this service.
The Schlesinger Library opened by appointment only to Harvard students, faculty, and staff, by appointment, September 1st and to visiting researchers on October 25th. The Reading Room is open Monday–Friday from 10:00 to 3:45, with the building closing to researchers at 4:00. Please visit the Ask a Schlesinger Librarian form to learn more about how to make an appointment and how to contact us with any questions.
202,000 pages! That’s how many pages we have been able to scan for researchers during our closure due to the pandemic. Through an all-out staff effort, we were glad to be able to provide robust scanning services to researchers all over the world at a time when no one could travel.
