HOW WILL RESEARCHERS BENEFIT ...
HathiTrust will enable scholars to access a vast array of material, produce customized searches, and discover new information previously too difficult to access or to study side by side. HathiTrust will increase the value of these resources to scholarship by ensuring long-term access, by creating scholarly tools, and by improving the quality of the digitized content over time.
Researchers will benefit from the expert curation and consistent access they have long associated with research libraries, but instead of having to search across each institution’s repository, they will benefit from a shared collection. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
