The UT Libraries offers access to millions of online resources including ebooks, articles, streaming audio and video, maps and more to current UT-Austin students, faculty and staff. In addition to our normally available online resources, we have additional online resources that have been made available temporarily during this time. When accessing Libraries online resources from off-campus, you will be prompted for your EID.
Staff are working remotely and cannot access materials to scan them for course use. Here are some options:
1. Your subject liaison librarian can help you locate an alternative online resource, look into purchasing an ebook version of the print resource if it is available, and advise you about copyright if you plan to make scans from a personal copy.
A note about copyright: The University has an institutional license to the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC). This license allows us to share text based resources via Canvas without needing to ask permission or consider fair use. You can share articles and book chapters with this license, but you can’t share entire books.
2. HathiTrust maintains a very large collection of digitized materials, including digitized books. During this time, any book available in HathiTrust that the UT Libraries owns in print (including books in copyright) is available to UT-Austin students, faculty and staff through HathiTrust. Click the log in button, choose University of Texas at Austin, and select Continue to be prompted for your EID and password. Books are available to one user at a time and may not be downloaded.
