Hathi Trust links

Certain  MNCAT records will now include links to HathiTrust, a shared digital repository for collections from over 25 major academic and research libraries. The text of all of these materials in Hathi can be searched and many of them are available in full text. The University of Minnesota is one of the major library partners that have launched HathiTrust Shared Digital Repository through the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC). 
The links are shown with a HathiTrust icon.

In other words, you can use Hathi as a search mechanism to identify page numbers where your search word appears within the actual book. This will help you decide if you want to check out the book from the University Libraries. If there are multiple volumes the link will take you to a HathiTrust page that shows you the availability of the individual volumes.


Incidentally, the name Hathi is from the Hindi and Sanskrit word for "elephant".


You can also search HathiTrust directly at http://catalog.hathitrust.org/.
