A number of tools exist to assist researchers in locating Harvard Law School Library's Historical & Special Collections materials.
Please note that no one source completely describes our holdings. In addition to online tools there are several useful print and microfilm sources kept in the Historical & Special Collections reading room. If you are unable to locate materials, please contact Historical & Special Collections for reference assistance. While staff members are not able to do extensive research, we do provide reference service for materials in the collections. On-site readers may schedule an appointment. Off-site researchers may submit reference inquiries via:
Phone: (617) 495-4550
Fax: (617) 495-8588
Mail: Historical & Special Collections
Harvard Law School Library
1545 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02138
Generally, most reference queries will be answered within twelve to fifteen business days.
For reference queries that require extensive original research we can refer you to a researcher for hire or you may contact Harvard Research Service, a temporary staffing agency that employs Harvard students.
