    Scope and Content

    The Harvard University Library annual report is a set of publications issued annually by Harvard University since 1878. Submitted by the University Librarian to the President of Harvard University, the report covers the activities of the entire library system of the University, including Harvard College Library and the libraries of the graduate and professional schools. While the specific titles of the reports have changed over time, much of the content has remained consistent, including reports regarding library facilities, the acquisition of new materials, circulation statistics, and library expenditures. This collection includes all Library annual reports published between 1878 and 2010. Reports in this collection printed prior to 1918 were bound with other administrative materials pertaining to the University Library.
