Organization and Governance of the University Library

The Harvard University Library consists primarily of the libraries that are administratively part of one of the University's faculties or related research institutions, including over ninety individual library units. While most are located in the Boston/Cambridge area, there are a few as far away as Washington, DC, and Florence, Italy. They vary greatly in size of collections. Some have only a few hundred volumes, while others have over a million.
