You’ll also read about HT developing a print holdings database. Here’s a part of the post:

HathiTrust has been working to design and populate a database of information representing the print holdings of all partner institutions. This database will serve a number of important functions:

  • It will support analysis of the overlap of institutions’ print holdings with digital holdings in HathiTrust – this information is required in order to implement the new financial model.
  • It will form a foundation for the expansion of legal uses of materials in HathiTrust (e.g. services to users with print disabilities) by partner institutions.
  • It will facilitate collaborative collection development and management operations.

To date, approximately 119.5 million rows of data have been received from partners, with each row representing one copy of a single volume monographic print item that is (or previously was) held at a partner institution.

Also Included in the Update:

  • An Ingest Update
  • Reports from Working Groups
  • Development Updates
  • April Forecast
