Online access to resources from HathiTrust

Update: HathiTrust access ends on 30 September

Emergency online access to materials provided by HathiTrust while Bodleian Libraries sites were closed will end on 30 September 2020. Records on SOLO have been updated to advise readers of this. After access ends, books that have been available through HathiTrust will be available for borrowing again if they are loanable copies.

The Bodleian Libraries currently has Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS) from HathiTrust, which provides access to 1.5 million in-copyright items and millions more public domain items available directly from the HathiTrust website and via clear links provided on relevant records in SOLO. The HathiTrust is a not-for-profit collaboration of academic and research libraries across the world and a major digital repository.

Through this arrangement, University members are able to access full text digital copies of books which exist in physical form in the libraries but cannot currently be accessed. Readers can download, in full, whole volumes of public domain books and readers with print disabilities will be able to request full book downloads on copyrighted items via ARACU.

University card holders can log in to the HathiTrust website by following the yellow login button at top right and entering Oxford into the box. Select University of Oxford to be redirected to the SSO login screen. You will need to click on the “Check Out” button on the orange bar at the top of the page for full access to specific items.
