Existing online access to library resources

HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS) -- (ended May 7, 2021)

Message from FLVC: "The HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS) will be deactivated for 11 of our participating SUS libraries at the end of Spring Semester on May 7, 2021. The remaining library, New College of Florida, will end ETAS participation on May 22nd, 2021 due to its unique academic calendar. All items will have the special ETAS Item Process Status removed and will be restored as appropriate. Mango ETAS behavior will be deactivated, and local circulation of resources will again be allowed.

ETAS provided temporary access to digitized in-copyright material at HathiTrust based on the collective holdings of the SUS libraries as a benefit of our group membership in HathiTrust. It was an important component for providing immediate access for users to library resources during the unprecedented time of restricted on campus access."

Through May 6, 2021, UCF has been providing temporary online access to many HathiTrust digitized books which are owned in print by our UCF Libraries and for which the digitized copies are normally blocked because they fall within the time period restricted by copyright.

  • "Temporary Access" books can be accessed only by current UCF students, staff and faculty.
  • UCF users log in with your NID after connecting to HathiTrust
  • "Temporary Access" books can be read only online. You can download one page at a time. You can't download the whole book.
  • You can check out a book for 1 hour. Your access will renew automatically at the end of that hour, unless another user requests the book after that hour is over.
  • ETAS: More Information for Users
