Background: OSUL is a member of HathiTrust and contributes scans from our collections to the shared digital collection. We also do copyright research to open scanned works for public access. Our users regularly draw on its resources and we are working to support researchers who want to text mine and perform other computational research on the digital corpus.

HathiTrust is pleased to announce the release of the 2017 Collections Growth and Usage Report https://www.hathitrust.org/engaging-the-collection. This report includes an initial look at usage by members and others, as well as characterizing the collections as of the end of last year.
