Library Adds Host of New, Expanded Resources

May 11, 2016

The UC Merced Library announced the addition and expansion of several resources and collections:

  • HathiTrust Digital Library — print disability access was updated to allow access to all copyrighted material in HathiTrust for students, faculty and staff members with visual impairments or print disabilities. The HathiTrust Digital Library is a partnership of research and academic institutions and contains more than 14 million digitized volumes. Access to HathiTrust print disabilities was previously restricted to materials that matched printed books in the UC Merced Library. 

For more information, email Access Services Librarian Elizabeth Salmon or call 209-631-6954.
