Digital Library Seminar Series: 2010-01-29

Topic

Columbia University and HathiTrust: Collaboration at a New Level

Speaker

Jeremy York

Affiliation

Project Librarian, HathiTrust Digital Library

Description

HathiTrust is an unprecented collaboration of leading research libraries that have pooled their resources and expertise to address challenges that are shared across all libraries in a more collective way. How do we ensure that our collections are accessible and usable to today’s researchers and to students and faculty in generations to come? How do we do so in ways that minimize duplication and maximize efficiency in the curation and use of our collective resources? This talk will introduce the goals, operations, and current activities of the HathiTrust partnership, and consider the role of Columbia University in this partnership as a function of its own needs and aspirations in a radically new, shared, and collaborative environment for managing and sustaining our library resources.
