Access to copyright-protected materials from the HathiTrust will end on August 20th.

When the Baylor Libraries were closed, and we were unable to circulate physical books and other materials, HathiTrust, in response to the COVID-19 emergency, created an Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS). ETAS made about 40% of the Baylor Libraries’ print titles available in digital form to Baylor's faculty, staff and students. As we resume providing access to the print collection, the conditions for the fair use of the digital copies of these materials end, and so does our access to this service. Please return to accessing our print collection in the usual ways.  

Copyrighted items will be still available for full-text search in the HathiTrust Digital Library and can be helpful in the creation of  bibliographies. You may continue to access the full text of HathiTrust materials in the public domain or available through Creative Commons licensing. These titles are marked “Full view” in the HathiTrust online catalog. Because Baylor is a HathiTrust member, you may log in to HathiTrust using your Bear ID/password and download full PDFs of those items.
