Baker Library. Something for Everyone.

Harvard Business School’s library is welcoming the class of 2011 with an Open House on September 9, 2009 from 2-4:30pm in the Baker Library Bloomberg Center. Tours will run continually providing students the opportunity to meet information research specialists and find out about services and resources available for academic and career research. The earlier you learn what’s available, the faster you can get up to speed before deadlines hit.

Harvard offers a vast array of information resources online, on the Web and in print. However, sometimes it’s not clear how to find the information you need. For a more detailed overview of resources useful for specific tasks, interactive sessions will be offered for ECs and RCs to head you in the right direction. No RSVP required.
