Get It services are designed to help university affiliates locate and request materials at the Harvard Library.

While our catalog (HOLLIS+ or HOLLIS Classic) is the primary gateway to Harvard library materials, Get It services allow you to request scans of certain materials from the collection as well as obtain books and articles not available at the Harvard Library.

The Get It umbrella of services includes:

  • Scan & Deliver, which allows you to request scans of Harvard-held articles or book chapters via the HOLLIS catalog
  • Borrow Direct, by which you can borrow materials from certain libraries, usually faster than Interlibrary Loan
  • Interlibrary Loan, by which you can borrow materials from other libraries

If you have additional questions, check out the Get It page, contact reference librarians at your school or call Widener Reference at 5-2411.
