Video: How the HathiTrust Copyright Review Program Works & HathiTrust Announces Three New Hires

Here’s a video recording of a HathiTrust webcast recorded yesterday.

From the Description:

HathiTrust’s collections include over 5.4 million volumes that are open for reading. A substantial number of these volumes are open because of cooperative copyright investigations conducted by staff as part of the Copyright Review Management System project (CRMS). Mike Furlough and Kristina Eden explain the factors that govern access to volumes in HathiTrust and how the copyright review program works.
