HathiTrust and Google Will Help Duke U. Press Digitize a Trove of Older Titles
Duke University Press has struck an agreement with HathiTrust and Google to make a large number of its backlist titles freely available through the HathiTrust digital repository. The press, like many others, hasn't had spare resources to digitize and archive all those books itself.
As many as a thousand titles could be eligible for the project, which the partners hope will be a model for other publishers who want to widen access to their material. With permission from
