‎‎The harmonic index of a connected graph $G$‎, ‎denoted by $H(G)$‎, ‎is‎ ‎defined as $H(G)=\sum_{uv\in E(G)}\frac{2}{d_u+d_v}$‎ ‎where $d_v$ is the degree of a vertex $v$ in G‎. ‎In this paper‎, ‎expressions for the Harary indices of the‎ ‎join‎, ‎corona product‎, ‎Cartesian product‎, ‎composition and symmetric difference of graphs are‎ ‎derived‎.
