On August 14, 2014, the Harvard Library launched a new search tool called HOLLIS+:
What do we like about HOLLIS+?
· Find and access articles, books and more
· Easy starting point for exploratory research
· Useful for interdisciplinary research because of the many sources covering a broad range of subjects
· Simpler and more intuitive search
· Great for known-item recall and general keyword searches
HOLLIS Classic will continue to be available- as will our usual range of e-resources and databases, for which this is not a replacement.
HOLLIS+ enables discovery of most Harvard Library resources in a single unified search.
Where the traditional library catalog (designed to replicate card catalogs) has more limited search capabilities, the HOLLIS+ catalog is able to find articles, books and more in one simple search.
We've put together a guide we hope will be helpful in using it: http://guides.library.harvard.edu/hollisplus_quicktips
