HathiTrust & VuFind Webinar Recording Available

CARLI recently introduced access to public domain, electronic full-text materials in the HathiTrust collection via the I-Share union catalog. Member libraries are now considering whether to incorporate the same HathiTrust records into default searches of their local catalogs as well.  So the question is: to Hathi or not to Hathi?

A recording of the August 13, 2012 presentation from the I-Share Users' Group OPAC Team on VuFind, HathiTrust, and Public Domain e-Resources is now available.

View the recorded webinar to learn:

  • What is HathiTrust?
  • What can your library currently do with these records?
  • What are the implications for small and large libraries?
  • What are the issues for mobile device users?
  • What are your options for providing access (or not) to 1.2 million freely available electronic documents via your local catalog?
