Where can I find group study space in the Harvard Library buildings?

Visit Find a Space. You can limit by options like library building, room features and number of seats. Choose "Group Study Room" under Room Type to see group study spaces.

To reserve, click on Reservable under Booking Options to see what spaces can be reserved, then click on the specific room for details and contact information. If a room cannot be reserved in this system, it's available on a first come, first served basis, when not otherwise booked for classes, meetings or other events. 

If a facility is not listed in Find a Space, visit their webpage for more information.
