Membership gives WU users access to millions of full-text volumes
As of January 1, 2012, the WU Libraries joined the HathiTrust Digital Library, whose goal is to digitize, preserve, and increase online access to library collections. The trust derives its name from hathi (pronounced "HAH-tee"), the Hindi word for elephant.
HathiTrust began in 2008 and has grown to over 10 million volumes. Content covers subjects and disciplines in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences in more than 425 languages.
WU faculty, students, and staff can:
- Download 2.7 million+ volumes in the public domain
- Search the full text of 10 million+ volumes
- Create personalized collections of items in HathiTrust
You can search for HathiTrust items directly from the WU Libraries' website using the eBooks tab. To limit to full-text volumes, check "full view only."
