About Hathi Trust

Digital versions of books in the HathiTrust repository (both those that are publicly accessible and copyrighted editions currently owned by UCF) are available to students, faculty and staff whose disabilities do not allow them to use printed books. Patrons who are registered with University of Central Florida's Student Accessibility Services may make requests for materials via the form below. Once the library staff has verified the patron, they will contact HathiTrust, obtain the material, and email the file directly to the patron.
