Ponca City Now - January 16, 2015 10:50 am

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State University Library is the newest member of HathiTrust, a partnership of major academic and research libraries.

Launched in 2008, HathiTrust has a growing membership currently comprising more than 80 partners who are collaborating in a digital library initiative to preserve and provide access to the published record in digital form.

The partners have contributed nearly 11 million volumes digitized from their library collections. More than 3.4 million of the contributed volumes are in the public domain and freely available online.

HathiTrust serves as a repository and guarantees the long-term preservation of the materials it holds. It also offers persistent access to the digital collections as both a service for partners and a public good. This includes viewing, downloading and searching to public domain volumes and copyright volumes.
