Library Plan for Phased Reopening

Preparations are underway for the phased resumption of access to Harvard’s physical libraries, when it is safe to do so. At the same time, the library is very much open virtually, and we are continually expanding and enhancing access to online resources and services.
Precise timelines for phased reopening of physical libraries are not yet known, but you are invited to help the library prepare by providing feedback on its
draft plan.  This plan is being developed by a committee working across the libraries and in consultation with the Harvard Library Faculty Advisory Council. 

As faculty members plan their courses, please know that our librarians, curators, and archivists are on hand to ensure Harvard’s teaching and learning experience continues to be exceptional. You are encouraged to reach out to your librarian to talk about what you need, whether that’s course materials, tutorials or other library services. Even if it seems that some things are out of reach, there may be interesting virtual possibilities.
