On the Web

A lot of older materials that are in the public domain (pre-1923) have been digitized and are available via the Internet. No need to request via interlibrary loan as you can access full-view documents directly.

Check these web sites:

Hathi Trust - as Brandeis is a partner institute of Hathi, you can access thousands of full-text downloadable pdfs of digitized book and journal content from the partner library collections. This includes both in-copyright and public domain materials digitized by Google, the Internet Archive, and Microsoft, as well as through in-house initiatives.

Internet Archive - access books digitized by Brandeis Libraries and other institutions as part of the Open Content Alliance
