The HathiTrust Digital Library includes ebooks of works made available through a global partnership of major research institutions and libraries. HathiTrust books can be searched in Catalyst or in HathiTrust Digital Library itself. Carleton is a member of this partnership, and our faculty, staff, and students (or other users on campus) may download any work in the public domain (published before 1923, generally) or read it in full online in a browser.
HathiTrust is now temporarily expanded to allow access to books we have in print in Gould Library. Log in and search for your desired book. If access is available, it will say Temporary Access, please click on that. You are allowed a 60 minute check out with unlimited renewals. For more information, check out this FAQ or ask a librarian for help.

You can always find a link to the library's HathiTrust subscription on the "Databases" tab on the library website. By linking to HathiTrust through the library website, you ensure that you are using our subscription (and have downloading privileges non-subscribers lack).
HathiTrust ebooks can be found in Catalyst along with all of our other print books and ebooks. They appear in the “All Results” search in Catalyst as well as under a separate “Books” tab. Public domain (or "Full view") HathiTrust ebooks can be read in your browser or downloaded.
