History[edit] HathiTrust
HathiTrust
was founded in October 2008 by the thirteen universities of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation
Committee on Institutional Cooperation
and the University of California. The partnership includes over 60 research libraries[4] across the United States, Canada, and Europe, and is based on a shared governance structure. Costs are shared by the participating libraries and library consortia. The repository is administered by Indiana University and the University of Michigan. The Executive Director of HathiTrust
HathiTrust
is Mike Furlough. In September 2011, the Authors Guild
Authors Guild
sued HathiTrust
HathiTrust
(Authors Guild, Inc. v. HathiTrust), alleging massive copyright violation.[5] A federal court ruled against the Authors Guild
Authors Guild
in October 2012, finding that HathiTrust's use of books scanned by Google
Google
was fair use under US law.[6] The court's opinion relied on the transformative doctrine of federal copyright law, holding that what the Trust had done to give access transformed the copyrighted works without infringing on the copyright holders' rights. That decision was largely affirmed by the Second Circuit
Second Circuit
on June 10, 2014, which found that both search and accessibility were fair use, and remanded to the lower court to reconsider whether the plaintiffs had standing to sue regarding HathiTrust's library preservation copies.[7] In October 2015, HathiTrust
HathiTrust
comprised over 13.7 million volumes, including 5.3 million of which were in the public domain in the United States. HathiTrust
HathiTrust
provides a number of discovery and access services, notably, full-text search across the entire repository. In 2016 over 6.17 million users located in the United States and in 236 other nations used Hathitrust in 10.92 million sessions.[8] Etymology[edit] Hathi, pronounced "hah-tee", is the Hindi
Hindi
word for elephant, an animal famed for its long-term memory.[9] References[edit]
