We now have access to HathiTrust? What does this mean?  HathiTrust is a digital collaboration by research and academic libraries, mostly consisting of scanned older works.

We have full download and print access for books out of copyright (pre-1923) that we own. Currently, due to the pandemic, we also have some additional books due to their "Emergency Access" provisions. It's still hard to guess exactly what those titles will be - but you can always go search for a title there, if you haven't found it in WorldCat Discovery.
To access HathiTrust, go to our Databases A-Z list, pick HathiTrust, and login with your DePauw email address and Moodle/eServices password.  
When you search, you'll see things labelled as Full View (our regular access):

or Temporary Access (our emergency access):

Full View can be used by multiple people at the same time.  Temporary Access requires check out and allows for just one user at a time:
