New Library Resources Available for HKS Alumni


After graduation, librarians at the Harvard Kennedy School Library & Knowledge Services (LKS) remain available to help alumni. We have created this website to highlight resources available. For the past several years, we have also been offering a series of workshops late in the spring, just before commencement, titled Beyond Harvard: Public Policy Research as HKS Alumni.

Much of what we highlight in the workshop is freely available on the Internet, and graduating students attending are often astounded by what they can access. In the past, we have highlighted Academic Search Alumni Edition. Harvard Library has just announced a beta program for all Harvard alumni through which we are able to provide access to a number of licensed resources, including Academic Search Alumni Edition. You will no longer need to log in to this resource with a username and password, but instead will be able to access it along with other resources available to alumni with your HarvardKey.

All licensed databases now available are included on our Beyond Harvard: Public Policy Research as HKS Alumni website. Two resources newly available to alumni that are heavily used by the HKS community include JSTOR and ABI/Inform Complete. If you have trouble accessing or searching any of these databases, please Ask Us for assistance. We really enjoy working with HKS alumni and look forward to highlighting these resources for graduating students during our workshop series in the spring.
