hyperref's backref? tug.ctan.org/cgi-bin/ctanPackageInformation.py?id=backref – Seamus Dec 14 '10 at 19:47

Seamus appears to be correct. If you're not using hyperref, just add this to your preamble:


(Probably this should go after the harvard-related stuff.)

If you are using hyperref, then just pass the pagebackref option to it somehow; either through package options, or using \hypersetup.

The hyperref manual specifically states that harvard is supported (though it doesn't actually say anything about backref there), but it recommends using natbib instead as that actually cooperates with hyperref.

I couldn't get it to work, with or without hyperref. No backrefs appear. – Ben Dec 18 '10 at 11:04
It works with natbib though. – Ben Dec 18 '10 at 11:36
