You may have heard, or read, about the Google Books Project, where some major research universities scanned and digitized entire library collections. It was a massive undertaking. There is also an Internet Archive of more material (over 10 million books) that has been preserved in electronic format. The Hathi Trust Digital Library has built a robust online platform to bring these, and other, resources together into a searchable database. Their
primary aim with their partners: “… to build a comprehensive archive of published literature from around the world and develop shared strategies for managing and developing their digital and print holdings in a collaborative way”.
