HathiTrust has taken an important step to open up copyrighted material in their digital library to member institutions who have copies of those items in their own physical collections. This emergency, temporary service expands access significantly beyond the millions of digitized public domain volumes already currently available via HathiTrust.
UA faculty, students, and staff now have access to digitized books in HathiTrust based on the UA Libraries' print collection. This emergency, temporary service expands access significantly beyond the millions of digitized public domain volumes currently available via HathiTrust.
To take advantage of this temporary expanded access by searching directly in HathtiTrust:
You can read these books online. You will have 60 minutes of access to the book during any session. If you remain active in the book during any session, access time will be extended. You may only read it online in an active session while using HathiTrust. This is to protect the author’s rights.
It's important to note that this is a temporary service. Emergency access will end when regular access to the UA Libraries' physical collection is restored.
To take advantage of this temporary expanded access using library search:
Search for a title in library search and select the result. If we have access through the HathiTrust ETAS program, you'll see a “HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service” link. When you select that link, you’ll be directed to the HathiTrust page, where you'll need to log in to read the book online.

Make sure to log in: Temporary Access books available from the UA Libraries' collection are available only when you select “University of Arizona” as the partner institution and log in using your UA NetID credentials. Use the yellow Log In button in upper right of the HathiTrust main page.
Check out an item only when you plan to use it: Each Temporary Access book has an initial checkout period of 60 minutes. If you remain active in the book during any session, access time will be extended. If you do not remain active, it will be released for use by another user on our campus.
