  • HathiTrust Digital Library

    HathiTrust Digital Library (formerly known as MBooks), makes the digitized collections of some of the nation’s great research libraries available for all. HathiTrust was initially conceived as a collaboration of the twelve universities of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation to establish a repository for those universities to archive and share their digitized collections.

    HathiTrust items can be found via the HathiTrust Digital Library.
