Hathi Trust Digital Library

HathiTrustThis is pretty nifty. Hathi Trust is a digital repository of materials being scanned at research libraries. (Hathi is the Hindi word for “elephant.”) You can get the fulltext of out-of-copyright books and government publications. I found examples of old government documents with fulltext in Hathi Trust, but not in Google nor Google Books. I’ll be using this a lot, I suspect.

  1. Yes, very cool. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Carol. It’s nice to know these institutions are collaborating to provide an alternative to Google Books.
