The University of Toronto is now a participant in the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS). This means that during the U of T library closure due to COVID-19, current students and faculty can read digitized versions of more than 2.5 million of the library’s in-copyright print books that have been deposited in the HathiTrust Digital Library.
The Emergency Temporary Access Service enables:
Students, faculty and staff to log in to HathiTrust and view all books published before 2004 that HathiTrust has verified as being held in U of T Libraries' print collection, even if in copyright.
Students, faculty and staff to read and search these books online. Books cannot be downloaded in full.
For each copy of a work in our collection, one simultaneous checkout will be allowed.
To learn more about the ETAS service, after logging into HathiTrust, select Help from the top menu and search for "ETAS information for users".
The ETAS collection will only be available while our physical libraries are closed.
