HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access

Recognizing that libraries have limited access to print titles in their collections, HathiTrust has activated their Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS). ETAS makes it possible for member library patrons to obtain lawful access to specific digital materials in HathiTrust that correspond to physical books held by their own library.

Many of the UMD Libraries' print books are now available digitally through the HathiTrust ETAS.  Titles that are available will show up in Worldcat with a "View Ebook" link and the notation "University of Maryland HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Collection." 

Refer to the directions on how to log in and check out these ebooks.
