The McMaster University community currently has access to the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS). Until McMaster Library buildings reopen, current students, staff, and faculty can read digitized versions of the library’s in-copyright print books that have been deposited in the HathiTrust Digital Library.

All users continue to have access to more than 6.7 million public domain and Creative Commons-licensed works. By offering this service, HathiTrust intends to help continue to support teaching and research at institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
