E-books and E-book Collections: HathiTrust


All HathiTrust materials available through Northeastern are linked in Scholar OneSearch, the library's catalog and discovery system.

Due to international copyright restrictions, some HathiTrust materials are not available to users outside the United States, including Canada or London New College of the Humanities affiliates.

Online reading

Northeastern students may read HathiTrust that are either in the public domain or having appropriate Creative commons licenses.  Logged-in users may also download PDF versions (epub, text, jpeg and zip files also), and create personal and shareable collections. 

Log in at the top right using your myNortheastern username and password for downloading and personal collection options.
