Finding Digital Collections at Harvard
In addition to the digital collections web site described elsewhere on this page, there are a number of paths available to discover digital collections at Harvard. As a rule, digital materials are integrated with other formats of the same category. For example, digital images can be found, together with print images, in the Visual Information Access (VIA) catalog. Many items that have been digitized are not part of collections with a web presence, and, currently, these can only be discovered through searches in the appropriate catalog(s).
While access to many licensed e-resources, such as electronic journals, requires a Harvard ID and PIN, many other electronic materials and digital objects are open to visitors. Here are some places to start:
