Q. When will the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service end?

As academic libraries nationwide became unable to circulate physical books and other materials due to the COVID-19 pandemic, HathiTrust created an Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS). ETAS made many print titles in the Penn Libraries’ collections temporarily available in digital form to Penn faculty, staff, and students. Starting August 9, circulation of these physical holdings will be restored, and emergency digital access will be terminated. Please note that as we are able to resume providing physical access to our extensive print collection, complete digital access to some ETAS titles will end.

In-copyright items remain available for full-text searching in the HathiTrust Digital Library and can be helpful in the creation of a bibliography. HathiTrust items in the public domain or that are available through Creative Commons licenses remain available for digital access. These titles are marked “Full view” in the HathiTrust online catalog. Because the University of Pennsylvania is a HathiTrust member, you may log in to HathiTrust using your PennKey and download full PDFs of those items.
