Harvard University Library

The Harvard Library encompasses over 78 individual library buildings spread across the Cambridge University campus, the United States of America, and even into Europe. The mission of the Harvard Library is to advance "scholarship and teaching by committing itself to the creation, application, preservation and dissemination of knowledge". The archive and "special collections at Harvard encompass a vast array of rare and unique materials in a multitude of formats, from papyrus to born-digital records". With the Widener library housing a special collection of Renaissance Studies items, there are many resources integral to studying this period at the Harvard Library.
