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.

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.

EThOS makes UK theses (e and paper based) available via a ‘one-stop-shop’ by harvesting e-theses from institutional repositories and digitising paper theses on-demand from researchers. The British Library, in collaboration with many UK universities and other associations, aims to provide over 250,000 theses produced by the UK higher education system on an open access model to all researchers and others requiring information. Some theses are available for immediate download, while others can be requested from a participating institution which then sends the thesis to the British Library for digitisation.

Australasian Digital Thesis Program

A collaborative distributed database of theses produced at Australian and New Zealand universities. The searchable database links back to complete digitized versions of the theses.

LexisNexis Statistical Datasets EASI Modules
