Here's the fine print:
Unlimited Annual subscription This is a change from the previous 3-workstation agreement (one in Wilson, two in CNES) This allows for use of the TLG from all campus IP ranges as well as remote access via VPN/proxy. It does not include access to alumni or groups other than current students, faculty or staff.

More about TLG

New HathiTrust Interface Design
The HathiTrust Digital Library has released a new design and new features for its website. The new design incorporates feedback submitted by HathiTrust users and input from HathiTrust's User Experience and Communications working groups.

Some of the highlights include:

Look and feel - HathiTrust has been given a fresh, user-friendly design that unifies all parts of the website.
Accessibility - HathiTrust continues its tradition of style with function, paying particular attention to accessibility in major and minor functional components of the interface.
An engaging homepage - A consolidated search area and prominent links to user collections, hand-picked books, and the mobile interface, invite users to explore the HathiTrust collection. Links to social media, the HathiTrust Research Center, and HathiTrust projects provide updates on activities and invite engagement.
Login benefits - Users can now log in from anywhere on the site, and the login area of the homepage highlights the benefits of logging in to users from partner institutions.
Improvements to the reading interface - Our new online reading interface increases the amount of space available for reading books, while still keeping reading controls and bibliographic information readily accessible.
Persistent tabbed search box - Options for searching the bibliographic catalog and full-text of works have been combined into a single tabbed search, with help information to guide users in deciding which search to use. A persistent search header allows searches to be performed from any page on the website.
