In order to prepare for the Fall semester we paused our scan services as of July 30th, the last day we accepted scan requests. Please check back with us in the Fall for updates on this service.
The Schlesinger Library is open to Harvard students, faculty, and staff, by appointment, as of September 1st. Harvard ID holders can make an appointment by using the Ask a Schlesinger Librarian webform. The Library plans to open to visiting researchers, by appointment, in early October. We encourage visiting researchers to check back with us in mid-September for updates. Online reference services remain available. For more information about our services and ways to get in touch, please visit the Ask a Schlesinger Librarian page. We’ve also posted a guide to help you locate resources online.
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.
