If you are a bibliophile and looking for the book Nirvana, drop by the Harvard University Library and reach the enlightenment you are seeking.

Located at the heart of Harvard University, HUL can dwarf any library in existence. This library system comprised of 90 individual libraries has a collection of nearly 17 million volumes ? that?s more than enough to last you a thousand lifetimes!

From its humble beginning of 400 books in the 1638 bequest of founder John Harvard, the collection grew unprecedentedly. The institution has books, documents and manuscripts from almost all topics, from law to politics, to language and culture. This quantity and quality of collection makes Harvard University Library the largest academic library and largest private library system in the world. This gives it a distinct class at par with other great libraries in the world, such as Library of Congress and the British Library.
