Research Help for Harvard Offices

The Harvard University Archives provides research advice in the use of their collections to University staff working on projects.

The Harvard University Archives' collections include historical records of Harvard offices, departments, and other administrative units.

We provide research advice and help in the use of these collections to University staff working on projects such as departmental histories, policy reviews, anniversaries, exhibitions, and other special events.

We also assist University registrars and authorized departmental administrators with access to archived student records.
