When will the Harvard Divinity School Library reopen?

Harvard Divinity School Library will reopen its physical spaces to all Harvard students, faculty, and staff on August 23 and to special borrowers and visitors on October 4. Our reopening plans align with Harvard Library’s reopening plans and with the University welcoming all students back to campus for the Fall 2021 semester. Until further notice, our hours of operation after reopening will be Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

As we reopen, we will continue to follow closely any public health developments and adhere to guidance from the University on safety. We will also continue to provide remote services that sustained us throughout the pandemic, including Scan & Deliver, digital reserves, and remote research support, while renewing in-person services and enabling users once again to access our spaces.

During the last week of August there will be library orientation tours for all new and returning students.
