Mason Libraries’ books available through HathiTrust

Thanks to a cooperative agreement between University Libraries and the HathiTrust, Mason students, faculty and staff now have online access to hundreds of thousands of books from our libraries’ stacks.

To access a digital version of a book from Mason’s collection:

  • Sign in to the HathiTrust
    • Select George Mason University from the drop down list
    • Login with your Mason NetID and password
    • Search for the title(s) you are interested in reading
  • For those books where Mason also owns a copy of the title and HathiTrust offers a scanned version of the contents, a “Temporary Access” link will appear.  Click that link and you can “check out” the title for online viewing during a one hour “exclusive access” period (renewable under certain conditions).  Full details on this emergency temporary access service (ETAS) are available at
