During the current closure of library facilities, UTL is working to make even more ebooks available. In many cases, concurrent user limits have been waived. Many books available only in print in the UTL collection have been made available through the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service  or through curbside pick-up. When you have found the book you want in the catalogue click on the  blue "Get Help" link to access these services. Additional books are being added all the time and might not be visible in the catalogue yet, so check our Ebook platforms and collections directly, or let us know if you’re looking for something in particular.
