HathiTrust offers online emergency access to Libraries print collection

University Libraries
April 27, 2020

Through a strategic partnership with HathiTrust, over 1 million of University Libraries' physical books are available to students, faculty, researchers, and staff in electronic format through the HathiTrust Digital Library.

Books can be checked out for renewable one-hour increments and are for reading online only. 

HathiTrust, a partnership of academic and research institutions, is offering this emergency service to its member libraries whose operations have been impacted by COVID-19. In addition to copyrighted materials, users can also continue accessing more than 6.7 million public domain and Creative Commons-licensed works.

This emergency service is temporary and only available while access to our print materials is restricted. When we regain access to our print collections, this service will be turned off
