New HathiTrust Book Download Capability
Through a new authentication method, UMN users of HathiTrust can now:
1) download full PDF of public domain and open access works
2) create permanent collections using HathiTrust's Collection Builder tool
By contrast, unauthenticated users cannot download public domain of Google scans to comply with HathiTrust's requirement to guard against systematic downloading. This new authentication method to HathiTrust (called Shibboleth) is accomplished through the use of the user's UMN x.500 ID and password and not credentials specific to HathiTrust. Try it out at: http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/wayf?target=https%3A%2F%2Fbabel.hathitrust.org%2Fcgi%2Fmb or click on the Login link from either the Full-Text Search or Collection Builder pages.
