HathiTrust, a not-for-profit collaborative of academic and research libraries, has taken an important step and opened up copyrighted material in their digital library to member institutions with copies of those items in their physical collections. This Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS), means that any books available through HathiTrust which are also in our collections will be available online without the additional step of requesting a digital scan. HathiTrust’s online collection contains 43% of our print collection.

  • To take advantage of this resource: Visit https://www.hathitrust.org and click the yellow “LOG IN” button.
  • Select “Johns Hopkins” and log in using your JHED credentials.
  • Search the site to find the book you want to view.
  • Click on the “Temporary Access” link at the bottom of the record to “check out” the item through the Emergency Temporary Access Service.

You will have 60 minutes of access to the book during any session. If you remain active in the book during any session, access time will be extended. Although you may download one page at a time, you may only read it online in an active session while using HathiTrust. This is to protect the author’s rights.

As always, if you can’t find what you need, please reach out to us at ask@jhu.libanswers.com.
