The links are shown with a HathiTrust icon.
For individual volumes, an orange HathiTrust icon means the complete text of the item is available for viewing online.
A gray HathiTrust icon means that the book is searchable but the actual text is not displayed. In other words, you can use Hathi as a search mechanism to identify page numbers where your search word appears within the actual book. This will help you decide if you want to check out the book from the University Libraries. If there are multiple volumes the link will take you to a HathiTrust page that shows you the availability of the individual volumes.
Incidentally, the name Hathi is from the Hindi and Sanskrit word for "elephant".
You can also search HathiTrust directly at http://catalog.hathitrust.org/.
