University of Alberta students, faculty, and staff can now access the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS) that provides temporary access to 1.8 million in-copyright titles that match University of Alberta's print holdings. This is in addition to the 4.4 million public domain works that are normally accessible through University of Alberta Library’s membership with HathiTrust. This means approximately 30% of our print holdings are accessible through this service. This collection is only available while our physical libraries are closed.

HathiTrust is a partnership of academic and research institutions offering a collection of millions of titles digitized from libraries around the world. University of Alberta faculty, staff, and students are able to access full-text material that is in the public domain (as determined by the Hathi Trust) or copyright cleared. This includes primarily books and materials published in the US prior to 1923 and those published outside of the US prior to 1873. The archive also includes a large collection of US government documents. Abstracts are available for more current documents. The archive is updated regularly.
Select "Full view" in your search results to access full text materials. Otherwise, search results will include all materials currently in the archive, regardless of access permissions.
