The library's computer catalog, the Harvard On-Line Information System (HOLLIS), has several new features this year.
The system now provides electronic mail service, which enables users to transfer HOLLIS database records to their own electronic mailboxes. HOLLIS has also expanded to include references to the Physics Research Library.
In addition, new changes include access to the Public Affairs Information Service International database--a computer list of public policy documents, as well as an upgraded system for locating references.
According to Julie Wetherill, a HOLLIS coordinator, orientation sesions will be held through October 4 in Cabot, Hilles, Lamont, Littauer and Widener libraries to acquaint students with the new additions to HOLLIS.
