Relationship to HathiTrust
HathiTrust is a partnership of academic and research institutions, offering a collection of millions of titles digitized from libraries around the world. The HathiTrust Digital Library (HTDL) is a digital preservation repository and highly functional access platform that continues to grow as HathiTrust partners, primarily academic libraries in the United States, contribute newly digitized content.
Individual access and preservation are important concerns for HathiTrust. It allows users to search for and build collections of digitized works, and to read those in the public domain.
The Research Center’s focus is on the aggregate strengths: what can we learn from so many books? Digitization has enabled large-scale questions that we couldn’t ask before, and the Research Center is here to help you ask them while working within the restrictions of intellectual property law.
