HathiTrust news

More big things happening at HathiTrust:

The new members to HathiTrust include the Library of Congress, Stanford University, Arizona State University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and University of Madrid, HathiTrust’s first international partner.

“This is an extraordinary moment for research libraries,” said John Wilkin, executive director of HathiTrust and associate university librarian at the University of Michigan. “These remarkable and forward-thinking libraries have come together to create a vast and increasingly comprehensive international digital library.”

The 52 partner institutions will participate in a constitutional convention and formal review of HathiTrust in 2011. At the convention, these institutions will define HathiTrust’s next phase of governance and shape future directions for the partnership.

Meanwhile, Roy Tennant declares on his blog at Library Journal that HathiTrust is our national digital library.
