Discovery services continue to add full text content. Two press releases this week announced that HathiTrust Digital Library content is now searchable through the EBSCO and OCLC WorldCat discovery services. Below are some snippets from each press release:
EBSCO: HathiTrust includes the digitized collections of more than 50 major research institutions and libraries. The HathiTrust Digital Library combines the resources of the partner institutions in order to preserve these vast digital collections. A large portion of the digital library is made up of books that have been digitized in agreement with Google Books. Additional content includes digitized content from partners including university presses and individual library’s collections. The enormity of HathiTrust’s digitized repository significantly expands the search experience for discovery users. Although HathiTrust offers a standalone search service, through EBSCO Discovery Service, users will soon be able to search HathiTrust’s collection of over 8.5 million digitalized volumes including over 9.5 million volumes, including more than five million book titles and 250,000 serial titles as part of EDS. Enabling the search of full text as part of EDS revitalizes these records by bringing them to the forefront of the user’s search experience and allows them to discover more of the library’s collection.
OCLC: Under this new agreement, OCLC will be able to integrate the full-text index of HathiTrust collections into services such as WorldCat.org and WorldCat Local. Following integration of the full-text index, users will be able to search beyond bibliographic records to include the full text of these cooperatively built library collections in their searches.
Content from the HathiTrust Digital Library complements member libraries’ collections already in WorldCat. Through a single search of WorldCat.org or WorldCat Local, users will easily find HathiTrust resources and other materials available in their own collections, and in the collections of thousands of libraries around the world that are part of the OCLC cooperativ
