HathiTrust Print Disabilities Access Update

Tue, April 26, 2016

HathiTrust Digital Library print disability access has been significantly updated to allow access to all copyrighted material in HathiTrust for students, staff and faculty with visual impairments or print disabilities.

The HathiTrust Digital Library is a partnership of research and academic institutions, and contains over 14 million digitized volumes. Previously, HathiTrust print disabilities access was restricted to materials that matched print books in the UCM library.

For items not available through HathiTrust, in-print items owned by UC Merced can be digitized. Please contact the Office of Disability Services at 209-228-6996 to obtain a referral for HathiTrust access and digitization requests.
