Here are a few highlights from the 2010 year in review.

Contributions

HathiTrust partners contributed 2.6 million volumes to the repository in 2010, raising the total number of volumes to more than 7.8 million. Nearly 2 million volumes are in the public domain. New institutions to contribute content in 2010 included:

Columbia University
Cornell University
New York Public Library
Princeton University
The University of Chicago
University of Illinois
University of Madrid
Yale University

Ingest of content from Internet Archive

Staff members at the University of California and University of Michigan worked together over a period of months to develop specifications and routines to ingest partner materials from the Internet Archive at scale. Well over 100,000 volumes from the Internet Archive have been deposited in HathiTrust by three institutions to-date, and more are on the way. This was a major step in the expansion of HathiTrust’s ability to accommodate content from a variety of digitization sources.

Collection Builder improvements

University of Michigan staff added functionality to the Collection Builder application to enable users to add multiple items from full-text search results to public or private collections.

Full PDF Download

Staff at the University of Michigan developed the capability to deliver full PDFs of all public domain materials through the HathiTrust PageTurner.

Upcoming in 2011 and Beyond

OCLC Catalog

A prototype of the HathiTrust-OCLC catalog will be released in beta in January.

Creative Commons Licenses

HathiTrust will soon offer rights holders the option to attach Creative Commons licenses to works they wish to open access to in HathiTrust.

Integration of BookReader into PageTurner

A new version of PageTurner, including the scroll and flip functionality and other features of the open source BookReader software, will be released in early 2011.

Developing support for publishing

As reported in the HathiTrust Update on October Activities, the MPublishing division of the University of Michigan Library has engaged in a 2-year effort to create ingest, management, and presentation tools that will enable the use of HathiTrust as a publishing platform for encoded text and page-image materials. The effort will focus first on journal content, with support for books planned at a later stage.
