UPDATE – Problems resolved.

Taylor & Francis eBook site is having problems with some titles.

Some ebooks are producing a “ERROR 404 : Sorry, we can’t seem to find the page you’re looking for.”

We are working on the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Following the commitment to making resources accessible to UBC faculty, staff and students all around the world, UBC Library has joined HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service.

What does it mean for UBC Library Users?

For the time that the Emergency Temporary Access Services is in effect, books that UBC Library owns in print that are in the Hathi Trust ebook collection will be available via Hathi Trust only.

Records for these books are included in Summon and the Library Catalogue, and of course, the Hathi Trust Digital Repository.

Accessing a book

Here’s the record in Summon for a Hathi Trust book:

When you click on the title, you will be directed to the Hathi Trust Catalogue, where the book is available digitally . A Temporary access button will be available, as shown below:

To borrow the digital version of the book, click on Temporary Access. It will lead you to another page, where you will be asked to Check Out.

The book will be available for you to use, and can be renewed or returned early.

If you are not able to access the book, there might be someone else using it at the same time, and you should try again later. If you face any other access issue, please, contact us.
