HathiTrust print disabilities access

HathiTrust Digital Library has long been known as an outstanding resource for obtaining digitized works that are in the Public Domain, but did you know they also offer special access to in-copyright publications for their partner institutions?

The UCF Libraries in cooperation with HathiTrust is pleased to offer accessible publications to our patrons with print disabilities.  Upon searching the Online Catalog (aka the Books/Catalog tab), “Accessible Resources  ” will appear as an option under Subcollection in the left column. Click on it to narrow your results to a subset of accessible HathiTrust titles, any of which may be requested for electronic delivery by clicking the ADA icon.  Once you’ve emailed yourself the citation(s), copy/paste the information into UCF’s request form at http://guides.ucf.edu/accessibility/hathitrust (Due to copyright restrictions, this service is solely available to students who have been verified through UCF’s Student Accessibility Services.)
