Video Recording: 2021 HathiTrust Member Meeting

A video recording of the 2021 HathiTrust Member Meeting (virtual) was shared on YouTube today. The meeting was recorded on October 21, 2021.

From the Video’s Description:

The past year has brought both the challenges of change and the opportunities, as well as urgent questions around access, sustainability, and equity. Responding to change and instigating change depends upon engaged individuals and entities. During this year’s meeting, we consider how the idea and practice of “community” defines HathiTrust and its services, contests commonly held beliefs about our community, and how, in a new era of change, HathiTrust members can once again coalesce around directing outcomes for the betterment of academic libraries, the individuals we serve, and society at large.

Keynote presentation by Kim Gallon, Associate Professor of History at Purdue University, and recipient of a Mellon-funded grant through HathiTrust Research Center’s Advanced Collaborative Support program, “The National Negro Health Digital Project: Recovering and Restoring a Black Public Health Corpus.”

A meeting agenda is available here.
