As the COVID-19 crisis took hold in March 2020, HathiTrust rapidly developed services to provide access to collections that would be inaccessible once libraries closed as a result of the public health emergency. Emergency Temporary Access Services provided students, faculty, and staff affiliated with HathiTrust member libraries with limited reading access to portions of the HathiTrust collection normally closed to users due to copyright restrictions.

This presentation will cover the service’s policy rationale and review its technical development, outline what we have learned from its use, and briefly speculate on what the next several months will bring.
