This service enables on-screen read access to 1.5 million in-copyright items in the HathiTrust Digital Library, which have been verified as held in the Bodleian’s collection in ph­­ysical form (in addition to approx. 4 million public domain items already available).

This service is available for Oxford University members only.

You can access resources directly using your SSO on the HathiTrust website:

New emergency access to eBooks with the HathiTrust

The Bodleian Libraries have arranged, with the HathiTrust, emergency access to millions of e-books. The HathiTrust is a not-for-profit collaboration of academic and research libraries across the world and a major digital repository. This service enables on-screen access to 1.5 million in-copyright items  which have been verified as held in the Bodleian Libraries, as well as approximately 4 million public domain items.

Current members of the University can access these resources directly via the HathiTrust website using their Single Sign-On.

Links are also being added to existing records in SOLO where a digital copy is available via the HathiTrust.
