In 2021, one of the many projects that the Digital Services Department handled was the preparation and upload of items into the HathiTrust Digital Library. Before Felicity Dykas retired, she was able to add over 120 items to our English Short Title Catalog Items collection, which brings the current total to 940!
Starting in September, other staff members were able to continue uploading items, starting with a small batch of rare manuscript leaves that had been donated to the University. We also added around 40 journalism typography books. We now have 56 items added to our Typography Collection in HathiTrust, with several more waiting. In the past few years, we have submitted 2, 221 items in total!
Adding items to the HathiTrust repository is an ongoing project, and we intend to add many more items in 2022. Stay tuned!
Below are a number of links for those interested in checking out what we added last year;
