Publication or External Link
Since HathiTrust’s founding in 2008 it has grown to become a worldwide force for collective action in the library community. Its collection now holds nearly 14 million volumes, but our activities as a partnership extend beyond simple notions of a “digital library.” Our 110 members are creating a common good for the benefit of readers worldwide, but are also developing services of lasting impact for their own researchers and students. This update from Executive Director Mike Furlough highlights HathiTrust’s services and its major programs focused on shared print, computational research, and federal documents.
