This arrangement, which respects Canadian copyright law, has been made possible by the University of Toronto Libraries’ membership in HathiTrust – a nonprofit partnership of academic and research institutions which preserves digitized books, journals, and other print materials, and makes them as accessible as possible under copyright law.
In addition to the digitized books held by HathiTrust which are also in our print collection, all library users continue to have access to more than 6.7 million public domain and Creative Commons-licensed works in HathiTrust, including the ability to download the full text of those works.
By offering this service HathiTrust is helping the University of Toronto Libraries continue to support teaching and research while we are physically distancing to protect the health of our community.
