HOLLIS Discovery System


HOLLIS now offers users a simple, intuitive interface for discovering library resources in significant new ways. The new HOLLIS is “a discovery environment” and not just a catalog. Located at http://discovery.lib.harvard.edu, HOLLIS now reflects a new generation of creative thinking about searching on the web as it differs from searches in traditional library catalogs. As users experiment with the new system, the older version – dubbed “HOLLIS Classic” – remains in place, continuously providing traditional search methods at http://holliscatalog.harvard.edu. Both can be accessed from the Harvard Libraries portal at http://lib.harvard.edu.

Using a HUID and PIN, members of the Harvard community are able to use HOLLIS to renew, hold, or recall items; to view a list of items checked out; and to check fines online.
