Although we can't sell access to the regular Harvard Library e-resources (this is not a library decision; we're limited by our contracts and their costs), the library is now able to offer a curated selection of e-resources for alums, including some JSTOR and EBSCO access. See the Alumni e-resources page of the library website for more information, and/or check out our list of Ask a Librarian FAQs around alumni e-resources.

Anything that was scanned as part of the Google project is available publicly, and links to these items can be found in the HOLLIS catalog. This material is all out of copyright in the U.S. and published prior to 1923. (If it is not out of copyright in the country where you are, you may not be able to see it.) Quite a bit of other open access material is linked in HOLLIS as well, and you can check sources like Internet Archive for more.

Many public libraries now provide access to extensive online resources, and if there's a university library near you, they may allow visitor access.

If you need a particular article, you can ask your local library to acquire it for you.
