HathiTrust: Digital Library Unveils New, Improved Webpage

HathiTrust is a shared collection of over 10 million volumes of digitized book and journal content. Columbia University is a member of this international partnership of 60-plus research libraries committed to the long-term preservation and availability of the cultural record.

HathiTrust recently unveiled a new website, with a new design and new features. You’ll now see a consolidated search area and prominent links to user collections, hand-picked books, and the mobile interface.

Links to social media, the HathiTrust Research Center, and HathiTrust projects provide updates on activities and invite engagement. Users can now log in from anywhere on the site, and the login area of the homepage highlights the benefits of logging in to users from partner institutions.

A new online reading interface increases the amount of space available for reading books, while still keeping reading controls and bibliographic information readily accessible.

Options for searching the bibliographic catalog and full-text of works have been combined into a single tabbed search, with help information to guide users in deciding which search to use. A persistent search header allows searches to be performed from any page on the website.

Make sure you log in as a Columbia University user to access the largest number of volumes and features.

If you have any questions about how to access this resource from CLIO or the web, or how to use its features, please contact the Butler Library reference staff.
