Promoting your Digital Collection

There are 3 key locations at Harvard to list your digital collection to ensure visibility to the Harvard community, to the broader scholarly community and to the public:

  1. E-Research at Harvard Libraries
  3. Harvard Library Digital Collections

E-Research at Harvard Libraries

First step is to request that your collection be listed as a resource on the E-Research site. See examples of other digital collections listed in E-Research.

To send an E-Research request, submit the Free Resource Acquisition and Description Form. In the Resources type/sub-category area of the form, select "Harvard digital collections".


Adding a catalog record in HOLLIS is generally a decentralized activity handled according to local department practices. For more information, contact the head of cataloging for your unit.

When adding a link to your collection from a HOLLIS record, be sure to use the e-resource URN.

Harvard web pages

Harvard University provides open online access to a rich array of digital materials, much of which results from digital projects at Harvard Library. Links to a growing number of digitized collections from the University's libraries, museums, archives and special collections can be found at: Digital Collections.

To request the addition of a collection, please contact Maggie Hale, Librarian for Collections Digitization.
