Linking to HathiTrust from NYPL Currently: 279,000 NYPL-provided volumes are linked directly to Hathi from our catalog By end 2011: All HathiTrust volumes linked in our catalog
Finding NYPL-provided content in HathiTrust
Can I download a PDF? Yes, if it’s in the public domain, AND… you’re logged in from a partner institution, OR it’s non-Google and non-UM digitized, OR it’s Creative Commons licensed (even if Google digitized!)
Logging in from NYPL? Not currently. We don’t support their authentication. Hopefully soon! Our RECAP and MARLI partners are partner institutions. Can create a Guest login through UMich to support everything except PDF downloads.
