Notice: HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS) Program Shutdown at USF

HathiTrust has been assisting libraries with bridging access to print collections for the past few months while we have been closed. During that time, we have not been permitted to loan print materials from the collection that are also in HathiTrust, because the HathiTrust online access “counted” as our copy for that time. With the reopening of the library, we have requested HathiTrust shut off the temporary online access to the digitized versions of the library’s print titles on their platform, effective August 24. Patrons will be able to check out the print materials by requesting them via mail or retrieving them in the building. We determined this step was necessary because, per the terms of the HathiTrust ETAS program, we could not allow both access to the print copies in the collection and the online versions through HathiTrust at the same time.
