HathiTrust Digital Library is a digital preservation repository that includes over 10 million volumes from partner library collections, digitized as part of the Google Books project, the Internet Archive project, or by individual partner libraries.
The HathiTrust collection is full-text searchable, with more than 2.7 million titles in the public domain that may be viewed online.
La Salle University is not a HathiTrust partner institution, which places restrictions on what we can download and/or print.
Hathi (pronounced hah-tee) is the Hindi word for elephant, an animal highly regarded for its memory, wisdom, and strength. Trust is a core value of research libraries and one of their greatest assets. In combination, the words convey the key benefits researchers can expect from a first-of-its-kind shared digital repository.
