Two million digital books are now available from a HathiTrust, a consortia of university libraries. These materials were scanned as part of the Google Book Search. Unfortunately, only 16 percent, about 327,000 volumes, are available in full-text because the other 84 percent are still in copyright.
This project will ensure that these materials remain available regardless of any future changes at Google. The collection will grow as the libraries' materials continue to be scanned and digitized.
