The mission of HathiTrust is to contribute to research, scholarship, and the common good by collaboratively collecting, organising, preserving, communicating, and sharing the record of human knowledge.

Launched in 2008, HathiTrust is an international community of research libraries committed to the long-term curation and availability of the cultural record. It has a growing membership currently comprising more than 140 partners. Members include: Cornell University, Stanford University, the New York Public Library, Northwestern University, and Princeton to name a few. Through their common efforts and deep commitment to the public good, member libraries support the teaching and learning activities of the faculty, students or researchers at their home institutions, and the scholarly needs of the broader public as well.

Over the last ten years, HathiTrust members have contributed more than 16 million volumes to the digital library, digitised from their library collections through a number of means including Google and Internet Archive digitisation and in-house initiatives. More than six million of the contributed volumes are in the public domain and freely available on the Web.

RMIT University selects Ex Libris Rosetta for preserving and providing access to digital resources
- 06 Sep 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that RMIT University has chosen the Ex Libris Rosetta digital asset management and preservation solution to handle RMIT's digital resources more effectively.

Few years ago, the RMIT university library initiated a program to digitise items from many university collections, including historical, art, and architectural images and student works. With plans to digitise additional collections, RMIT recognises the importance of a solution that will offer long-term preservation of the newly digitised resources along with 24/7 access to them.

Rosetta will enable to expose more of the unique collections to both students and staff.

The Rosetta solution will also address RMIT's need for a mature solution that will integrate with the school's other applications, adhere to worldwide preservation standards, and benefit from a strong development roadmap.

Digital Science integrates over 1.4 M patents from Russia into Dimensions platform
- 21 Aug 2018

Research technology company Digital Science has integrated over 1.4 million patents from Russia into its Dimensions platform, which provides information on scholarly research activity worldwide.

The only research insights platform to consistently link Russian patent information to publications from universities and research institutes globally, Dimensions aims to transform the way research is discovered, accessed and analysed.

In addition to patents, Dimensions is also the most complete source of funded grant information, with data for projects totalling over $1.3tn funding from more than 250 organisations worldwide, including key funders from G20 and OECD countries and beyond. It enables users to explore the connections across the research lifecycle by linking this extensive funding and patent data with their associated publications, clinical trials and scholarly metrics.

With the new integration of Russian Patent Office data, provided by patent services company IFI CLAIMS, sourcing the records directly from Federal Institute of Industrial Property (FIPS) as well as European Patent Office (EPO), users of Dimensions are able to easily explore all of the patents and further refine search results to specific years, disciplines, and legal status.

Individual publication pages within the platform will also show where publications have been referenced in Russian-issued patents, making it possible to identify the paths leading to the commercialisation of research from around the world.
