HathiTrust Records Go Live on the DPLA

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) recently doubled its holdings from about 2 million to 4 million records. As part of HathiTrust’s agreement to be a content hub, 1.7 million titles went live on the DPLA search interface, effectively adding nearly twice the content records to the DPLA repository.

HathiTrust titles are also available through the DPLA’s open API, so developers can create educational tools and apps using DPLA data.

HathiTrust, which preserves freely available resources from universities and libraries, partnered with the DPLA in June and will continue to host the content now searchable through the DPLA. A total of 3.5 million records on HathiTrust are set to be included on the DPLA site, according to the terms of the agreement.

Adding these 1.7 million titles makes HathiTrust the DPLA’s largest content hub; the DPLA also works with other institutions such as the Smithsonian, the National Archives, and the New York Public Library.
