Need a book? We've got you covered! Follow this roadmap to find e-Books on reserve and through UCLA Library.
Haven't found it yet? No problem! We'll also show you how to search HathiTrust's Temporary Expanded Access Service, a collaboration of academic libraries preserving a massive collection of scanned books from around the world.
UCLA students, faculty, and staff currently have temporary expanded access to UC library books collected by the HathiTrust Digital Library.
This means that if any UC library has a book in print and in the HathiTrust, you can get temporary access to it electronically through the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service. That’s more than 7 million books!
If you just need a portion of the book, try requesting a section or chapter of the book through an interlibrary loan (ILL). Or if you need the whole book, get in touch with a librarian.
Now you have a road map to follow when searching for e-books in the future!
And, as always, UCLA Library is here for you! Let us know how we can help!
