HathiTrust Provides Sneak Peek of Public Domain Items Opening in January 2022

From the HathiTrust December 2021 Update:

In January, HathiTrust will once again celebrate the return of Public Domain Day. This coming year, titles published in 1926 will enter the public domain in the United States, including more than 42,000 items in the HathiTrust collection. Some of these will also be viewable globally. Global readers will also gain public domain access to 54,000+ titles published in 1896, and up through 1901 if published in Canada or Australia.

Here is a sneak peek of works that will be opening in January. Your favorites might already be open thanks to the copyright review program, but for any that are closed you’ll need to wait until 2022.
