Harvard hot library

Lorcan

According to the Newsweek Kaplan College Guide, Harvard has the “hottest” library among US universities:

Harvard’s library system ranks with the best of any kind in the country, even the Library of Congress. “It contains the largest collection of every kind of book and bit of information anyone would ever want,” says library director Sidney Verba. The collection includes more than 15 million volumes, 5.5 million microforms, 6.5 million manuscripts and 5 million other research materials such as photographs, maps and recordings. Even undergraduates take advantage of these resources for writing term papers and senior theses. Harvard’s digital collection is particularly strong, and a big draw for students who want access to just about every online journal around. [MSNBC – America’s 25 Hot Schools]

University Futures are shaping Library Futures

Libraries are not ends in themselves, but serve the interests of the organizations of which they are a part. As university emphasis varies around research, education and career poles, we can expect to see libraries evolve to support those emphases more strongly.
