Georgia State University Joins HathiTrust

Print Georgia State University is now a member of HathiTrust, a partnership between research institutions to provide online access to a vast searchable collection of materials digitized from libraries around the world. The HathiTrust Digital Library currently contains over 16 million volumes, of which approximately 37% are in the public domain.

Membership in HathiTrust means that Georgia State University researchers gain access to the full range of HathiTrust features, such as expanded full-text downloading of public domain and Creative Commons-licensed works, creation of custom collections, and special access to in-copyright materials for users with print disabilities. The HathiTrust Research Center supports computational analysis using the works in the HathiTrust Digital Library.

One of HathiTrust’s major collections is of federal government documents. As of January 1, 2018, the HathiTrust Digital Library contained over 1 million federal documents. These documents include a wealth of historical agency materials previously unavailable digitally. The ultimate goal of the HathiTrust U.S. Federal Government Documents Program is to build a complete digital collection of federal documents previously distributed to libraries in print.
