Sign-ups for  In-Class Technical Support for Faculty

For those who would benefit from it, OUE can provide in-class technical support for the first few Zoom class meetings. A trained volunteer will join your Zoom class meeting to help address any technical problems that arise for you or your students. If you would like “ride-along” technical support, sign up through this Google Doc and let OUE know when your class will be meeting. 

Bok Center

Sign up with the Bok Center to arrange a consultation with senior staff.

Information about Harvard Libraries and access via The HATHI TRUST

Information regarding Library Access

- During the COVID-19 crisis, all FAS library locations are closed to foot traffic, per the Library’s announcement, however, to ensure that online services and resources continue to be made available. As part of this effort, librarians continue to provide chat, reference and consultations through online venues.

- Harvard Libraries has established a website with information about Open Access Resources.

Click here to read about the partnership between Harvard Libraries and the Hathi Trust that gives access to digitized versions of Harvard-held books.

- Only graduating students and those leaving the Cambridge area without plans to return may return library books to Widener Library. Please call ahead by 617-495-2448 to set up a no-contact drop-off appointment with a guard. All others are asked to continue to hold onto their library books for the time being, as space for returned books is limited. All currently-loaned items have had their due dates extended until September, to avoid any fines accruing.

Barker Center
