A handy Hathi Trust website tutorial for UK and European readers. It details how to bypass the EU’s ridiculously elongated copyright terms, and access blocked material that is freely available to Americans.
Update: as of 2017 it’s now easier just to install the Opera Web browser (desktop PC version), and use their easy free VPN service.
Update, at spring 2020, a VPN seems to only way to reach Hathi from the UK. Even then, the site is just un-usably slow. This situation has been ongoing for about six weeks, at early May 2020.
