HathiTrust Digital Library: Accessibility

Accessibility: Special Access for Full View or Limited View Titles

Syracuse University users with certified print disabilities can request text-enabled PDFs of HathiTrust volumes. These are requested on a title-by-title basis, and any item in HathiTrust is eligible, regardless of whether it is full view or limited view.

To request access, please contact the circulation department with your name, SU NetID, the book author and title, and the link to the exact volume you need in HathiTrust.

See the HathiTrust Accessibility page for more information.

Accessibility: Page by Page Access for Full View Titles

Titles that are full view can be accessed on a limited basis by users with screen readers. While viewing a full view title online, toggle the view to "plain text."
