HathiTrust Temporary Emergency Access

NYU Libraries has partnered with HathiTrust to enable temporary emergency access to digitized versions of nearly 40% of our print collections. NYU Libraries' HathiTrust membership gives NYU students, faculty, and staff temporary access to one million in-copyright, print books previously inaccessible because of building closures. these digitized versions don’t have the full functionality of an e-book, this partnership represents a remarkable achievement in granting temporary access to one-third of the Libraries’ in-copyright titles.

  • Searching: Search for items in the NYU Libraries catalog (or through the HathiTrust website). If a digitized version is available here will be a HathiTrust link in the ”Online Access” section of the catalog's item record. 
  • Reading: Digitized materials are available for 1 hour. Automatic renewals occur as long as the item isn’t being requested by another user.
  • Downloads: Downloading no longer supported.
