Due to the suspension of access to physical collections at many libraries, HathiTrust has developed a service (ETAS-Emergency Temporary Access Service) to provide online access to titles within the HathiTrust collection which are in copyright. As a Partner Institution, the University of Delaware Library is able to provide access to those books for which the UD Library owns a print copy. For UD, that is more than 500,000 items.
These books are fully searchable in DELCAT Discovery - by author, title, subject, keyword - with links which connect to the full-text item in HathiTrust.NOTE: This service is available only to current UD faculty, students and staff.
To take advantage of this service:
Additional information is available at: ETAS: Information for Users. Included at this site are Highlights of the Service and Frequently Asked Questions.
Log-in, Log-in, Log-in!
Temporary Access books available from your library’s collection are available only when you log-in to HathiTrust using your normal institutional log-in and password. 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 check-out 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 other users on your campus.
Use step-by-step instructions for computer/mobile access.
