This guide provides basic information about the HathiTrust Digital Library.
HathiTrust brings together the digitized collections of research libraries around the nation and makes them available to everyone. There are more than 140 members in HathiTrust, including the University of Washington. HathiTrust allows researchers to access a vast array of materials and find information that has traditionally been hard to find. HathiTrust allows users to customize searches and build collections for easy access to digitized works.
HathiTrust Digital Library has over 16 million titles in the public domain and under copyright. Public domain works are available to everyone, while most items under copyright are restricted. Full access to in-copyright items in the HathiTrust is currently only available to print-disabled patrons at the University of Washington Libraries, and access can be requested via Library Account Services. All items are available for search but items under copyright may not have a full-text viewing option. HathiTrust allows users to create collections of any of the items in the digital library, even if the items are limited to search only.
