How do I access course readings and other course resources?

Internal Students

Upon enrollment in an HGSE course, Harvard/HGSE students automatically have access to digital content created and selected specifically for their HGSE courses in Canvas.  Once logged into an HGSE course in Canvas, locate  "Library Reserves" in the left navigation pane.   Once you open "Library Reserves" you will see one list comprising all types of content specifically for your course to  include locally digitized and licensed book chapter pdfs, links to library subscription  e-journals, e-books, databases, print books on course reserve, links to external web content, videos and more.

*Note: The HGSE document fee covers the licensing cost for locally digitized and licensed book chapter pdfs for HGSE students in HGSE courses for the year.  Harvard students from other schools cross-registering, auditing or enrolled in a cross-listed HGSE course will be assessed a $25 fee (per course) that covers the licensing costs for locally digitized and licensed book chapter pdfs.

External Students

Students from outside of Harvard cross-registering into or auditing an HGSE course can access course readings and other resources once they receive Harvard/Harvard Key credentials.  Once logged into an HGSE course in Canvas, locate  "Library Reserves" in the left navigation pane.   Open "Library Reserves"  to see one list comprising all types of content specifically for your course to  include locally digitized and licensed book chapters, links to library subscription  e-journals, e-books, databases, print books on course reserve, links to external web content, videos and more.

Alternatively, non-Harvard affiliates may use public computers in Gutman to gain public access to library subscribed e-resources, e-journals, e-books, databases etc.
