With the reopening of the Auburn University Libraries’ buildings, the justifications for keeping emergency temporary access to additional HathiTrust assets no longer apply and this access was deactivated on Friday, Aug. 14. Library patrons are now welcome to enter the library to select materials from the stacks or request delivery of materials through Campus Delivery services, https://www.lib.auburn.edu/jcourier/index.php.

AU Libraries began its access to additional HathiTrust assets in early April 2020 when the Libraries’ buildings were closed. This allowed library patrons to have online access to almost 48 percent of  AUL’s collection.

After the deactivation, titles that previously appeared in HathiTrust as “Temporary Access” for logged-in users will now be displayed with the label “Limited (search only).” These are the items where copyright restrictions apply. Items in “Full View” are items available via the public domain or through Creative Commons licensing.

AUL became a member of the HathiTrust in 2015. HathiTrust is a large-scale collaborative repository of digital content from research libraries. It includes content digitized as part of the Google Books project and Internet Archive digitization initiatives, as well as content digitized locally by member libraries.

Please contact your liaison librarian if you have any questions on use of HathiTrust and other Libraries assets. https://libguides.auburn.edu/libraryinstruction/contact
