Digitized collection of books, journals, and other items from major research libraries.
HathiTrust is a partnership of research institutions and libraries (including UGA) that preserves and provides access to digitized content from library collections. HathiTrust includes content under copyright as well as public domain items that have been digitized by Google, the Internet Archive, Microsoft, and library initiatives.
“Full View” items may be viewed by anyone since they are no longer protected by copyright or have been given open access permission. UGA users may download the full text of Full View items after logging in.
“Limited (search only)” items are still under copyright protection. Although they can’t be viewed online through the HathiTrust, you are searching their contents when you do a search. If you find something of interest, check the UGA Libraries’ catalog GIL Find to locate it at UGA or another University of Georgia System library. If the item is not listed in GIL Find, you may be able to borrow it through Interlibrary Loan.
UGA faculty, staff, and students may also create and save records to individual collections by logging into HathiTrust. Collections may be shared for subsequent use at UGA and beyond.
