HathiTrust (pronounced 'hah-tee') is a partnership of libraries and research institutions that have come together to build and share a digital repository of print works.  Begun in 2008, the goal of the partnership is to both preserve and provide access to print works.  HathiTrust has pursued this goal chiefly by digitizing materials like books and journals from library collections and making them available in HathiTrust Digital Library.
