Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy

“The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy was founded in 1995 for the purpose of providing detailed, scholarly information on key topics and philosophers in all areas of philosophy.” Articles are currently from three sources: (1) original contributions by specialized philosophers around the Internet; (2) adaptations of material written by the editors for classroom purposes; and (3) adaptations from public domain sources (typically from two or more sources for per article). The IEP offers access to a keyword site search engine and is free of charge to all Internet users. It is continuously revised and updated.

HathiTrust Digital Library

As a digital repository for the nation’s great research libraries, HathiTrust brings together the immense collections of partner institutions. It was initially conceived as a collaboration of the thirteen universities of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, the University of California system, and the University of Virginia to establish a repository for those universities to archive and share their digitized collections, and quickly expanded to include additional partners with fast growing treasure of digitized collections.

Baylor University joined the HathiTrust in fall 2010.  Consequently, those faculty, students, and staff with active Bear IDs will be able to authenticate their access in HathiTrust and download the full text of public domain materials and create permanent collections of resources of interest to them.  For detailed information on HathiTrust, see the HathiTrust LibGuide.

Since Baylor is now a full partner in HathiTrust, enhanced access is available for Baylor students, faculty, and staff through their Bear ID and password, using Shibboleth, an Internet2 technology for inter-institutional identification. Although this level of access isn’t required to search HathiTrust or view the full text of public domain materials, additional functionality is available to users from partner libraries:

  • The complete PDF of items no longer protected by copyright can be downloaded (non-partners can only download a single page at a time); and
  • Collections of items in HathiTrust can be created and saved (non-partners can create collections, but they cannot save them).

More information on Baylor’s partnership with HathiTrust is available here.
