Title: Digital Preservation and Access at Scale: Managing the HathiTrust Digital Library
Presenter(s): Aaron Elkiss (HathiTrust)

Founded in 2008, HathiTrust is a not-for-profit collaborative of academic and research libraries preserving 17+ million digitized items comprising over 1PB of digitized images and OCR text. HathiTrust offers reading access to the fullest extent allowable by U.S. copyright law, computational access to the entire corpus for scholarly research, and other emerging services based on the combined collection. This presentation will give an overview of HathiTrust, the data we hold, and the services we provide. It will then describe our storage architecture, our workflows for managing data coming into the repository, our strategies for ensuring long-term preservation of this material, and conclude with some of the unmet challenges of data management that HathiTrust faces.
