Harvard Library Get It! Services provide Harvard students, faculty and staff with several options for locating and requesting library materials not currently available.
Borrow Direct is a shared catalog with several other university libraries. You can search the catalog directly and request books to be delivered to HKS. You can also click on the Borrow Direct link for a specific item in HOLLIS, found in the Locations & Availability tab below "Not available at Harvard?"
In this example, the book is already checked out by another researcher:
When you click on Request Item, the borrower receives an email to return the book. Instead, we suggest that you check Borrow Direct to see if a copy is available from another library.
