UCF is 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.
In addition to existing library subscriptions to online databases, ebooks, streaming videos, and journals, UCF Libraries is working with several vendors to expand online access temporarily. Caution: The expanded access is temporary and will expire on various dates between April and August, depending on the vendor. If you’re prepping for a fall semester course, please contact your subject librarian so that we can verify that specific ebooks and streaming videos you would like to use will still be available at that time.
Emergency access ceased June 16.
In addition to the above resources, the Internet Archive is providing temporary access to a large collection of digitized books, many of which might otherwise only be available to UCF faculty, staff, and students from the UCF Libraries collection as print books.
Some publishers of online textbooks are providing temporary access to their resources at no cost.
