Harvard Digital Collections

Search and discover over six million publicly available, digitized items from Harvard Library.

What is Harvard Digital Collections?

While much of Harvard Library's digital content is available only to Harvard affiliates, Harvard Digital Collections provides free, public access to over six million digital objects - from ancient art to modern manuscripts and even audio/visual material. 

Using records from our LibraryCloud API, this platform brings together information from multiple library catalogs and data sources, alongside hi-resolution digital images allowing users to pan, zoom, and compare multiple images side-by-side. 

This work was made possible, in part, by funds from the Library's Innovation Grant program.
