Members of the Harvard Law School community (e.g., students, faculty, and staff) are used to borrowing books from other libraries using either Borrow Direct or Inter-Library Loan and may find themselves in a situation where it is easier to go directly to the other library. This may happen during a summer job or internship located in another state.
Fortunately, many of the libraries that participate in Borrow Direct also allow on-site borrowing privileges through Borrow Direct Plus. The Borrow Direct Plus website contains a list of participating institutions with links to each institution's specific privileges, processes, and procedures. Please note that access and procedures are established by each participating institution and therefore will vary. Also, not all of an institution's libraries may participate in Borrow Direct Plus (even if they participate in Borrow Direct).
If the library you need does not participate in Borrow Direct Plus, you may still be able to obtain physical access privileges but not borrowing privileges (see "Can I use another law school's library when I'm on vacation?").
