From “Unlocking HathiTrust: Inside the Librarians’ Digital Library” at the Library Journal.
In a world where commercial forces have staked out wide swaths of digital territory, HathiTrust is a digital library by libraries for libraries, and on a huge scale. We continue and extend libraries’ traditional role —building, curating, and preserving useful collections and providing the best access possible to patrons—in the digital realm. HathiTrust is a collaborative enterprise, supported by funding and in-kind contributions from participating libraries.
Thanks Constance for letting me know about it.
