From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

HathiTrust is a shared digital repository (SDR) for storing university library digital content including that from the Google Book Search Project. The concept for HathiTrust evolved from the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) and operates under the leadership of the Repository Administrators (Indiana University and the University of Michigan), which also provide a large part of the funding.

Additional governance and financial support are provided by the charter participating libraries of the CIC, The University of California, University of Virginia, and by other libraries and library consortia wishing to archive digital content.

Director of HathiTrust is John Price Wilkin, who has led large-scale digitization initiatives at the University of Michigan since the mid 1990s.

"Hathi" is the Hindi word for elephant, an animal famed for its long-term memory.
