Baker Library┋Bloomberg Center
Harvard Business School, Harvard University
While the resources of Baker Library cover a wide range of dates, geographical locations, and subject areas, they are particularly strong in documenting the growth of American business and industry from the late 18th century through the early 20th century. Researchers will find extensive manuscript collections as well as significant holdings of trade catalogs, trade cards, industrial photographs, and corporate reports. These research materials are furthermore supported by comprehensive book collections, which are especially rich in trade publications, government documents, corporate histories and publications, and business directories. Baker Library also houses the Kress Collection of Business and Economics, an expansive collection of rare books published before 1850, as well as the official archives of the Harvard Business School.
