The Library Reserves Tool in Canvas hosts a range of library resources, in particular specially digitized and licensed book chapter pdfs exclusively for HGSE courses.  The cost of specially digitized and licensed book chapters is covered by a course materials fee:

  • If you are an HGSE student: the course materials fee for the entire year is included in HGSE's annual document fee ($220). The HGSE document fee is assessed annually (via term bill), just before the start of the academic school year. 
  • If you are a Harvard University student cross-registered in an HGSE course or enrolled in a course jointly offered with HGSE: you will automatically be term-billed $25 for each HGSE course in which you are enrolled.

Once enrolled, access your book chapter pdfs along with other resources in the Library Reserves Tool on course sites in Canvas. (Be sure you are logged in with your HarvardKey)
