HathiTrust is offering an exceptional service to AUB Libraries as one of only seven non-US partners in the collaborative.
Through the Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS), AUB students, faculty, and staff now have temporary access to the online version of over 46,000 print books and periodicals from our library collection and 219,000 in-copyright items. This is in addition to 4.4 million public domain items that were already accessible through our HathiTrust partnership.
One concurrent digital checkout is allowed for each print copy. ETAS will be available for as long as the current emergency lasts. To access and search the service, please go to the University Libraries and select HathiTrust from the list of databases.
