HathiTrust (pronounced 'hah-tee') is a partnership of libraries and research institutions that have come together to build and share a digital repository of millions of print works. Begun in 2008, the goal of the partnership is to build a comprehensive archive of published literature from around the world. HathiTrust has pursued this goal chiefly by digitizing materials like books and journals from major library collections and other partners, such as Google and the Internet Archive. Over 120 academic libraries and other major research institutions are members of HathiTrust. The University of Pittsburgh joined HathiTrust in 2010.
