The HathiTrust.org Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS) opened up copyrighted material in the HathiTrust digital library to member institutions with copies of those items in their physical collections. Millions of digitized books available through HathiTrust that are also in UC libraries’ collections are now available online to UC students, faculty, and staff.
Use your UCSBNet ID and password to log in to the HathiTrust Digital Library. You can view books that are still in copyright for renewable one-hour loans. You are not able to download the book in any way; you may only read it online in an active session while using HathiTrust. As always, you may read and download public domain books at will.
To take advantage of this temporary expanded access:
You will have 60 minutes of access to an in-copyright book during the session. If you remain active in the book during the session, access time will be extended. You are not able to download the book in any way; you may only read it online in an active session while using HathiTrust. This access model is intended to address the unique access needs of this moment while still protecting the author’s rights.
It is important to note that this is a temporary service. Emergency access will end when regular access to UC Library’s physical collection is restored.
WorldCat Discovery @UCSB is a way to find books and other materials located in libraries outside the UC System.
