Due to the suspension of in person services and access to physical collectons 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 only available to current UD faculty, students, and staff.
