In response to library closures due to COVID-19, HathiTrust Digital Library provides lawful temporary access to digitized content from University of Waterloo library’s collections to our students, faculty and staff. This new service provides the following access:

  • In-copyright materials: online reading of over 830,000 book and journal volumes from the University of Waterloo’s print collection. This access is provided through HathiTrust's Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS), a service that is temporary and only available while the Library’s print collection is not available for circulation or consultation due to the current COVID-19 situation.
  • Works in the public domain: access to more than 4.4 million public domain and Creative Commons-licensed works that you can download.
