Beyond Google Books: Getting Locally-Digitized Material into HathiTrust

Page from early printed edition of Dante's Divine Comedy with an elaborate border and capital N.

HathiTrust started out with only content digitized by Google, but a goal from early on was to support digitized book material from a variety of sources. One early effort provided a toolkit to partners for preparing content, but which turned out to require more technical effort than was reasonable. We rethought our approach and simplified the requirements for partners while maintaining the same high quality standards for HathiTrust.
