Research Assistant Accounts

Individuals conducting research for faculty members from Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine and T.H. Chan School of Public Health may be sponsored by that faculty member to receive a Research Assistant account.

These accounts are proxies under the sponsor's library account, and give full in-building and remote access to Harvard Library resources. The sponsor assumes full responsibility for any and all fines, fees, and other liabilities incurred through the use of these privileges. All correspondence related to library use will be sent to the sponsor.


Procedure for New Applicants

We will process the application, explain activation and direct you to the ID office, where you will have your photo taken and your library card printed. We will also be happy to explain how to use our resources and answer any of your questions. Cards are valid for one year after issue.


Procedure for Renewals

Both sponsor and researcher must be the same person for it to be a renewal. Any change requires the procedure for new applicants.
