6 Partners involved at many levels Governance by partners Executive Committee Strategic Advisory Board In-kind contribution from partners Working Groups Operations and development Funding from partners

7 Working Groups Appointed by Strategic Advisory Board and Executive Committee Both operational and strategically-focused groups Collections, Communications, Discovery Interface, Full-text Search, Usability, User Support Now 40+ people across the country Expertise from across the partnership

8 Cost Models # 1: Contributor model Partners pay per volume deposited Economy of scale keep costs low #2: Sustaining model, holdings-based Partners share in costs of curating aggregate collection Share in uses of relevant materials Voice in future directions Sustaining common resource Quality of services increases Costs go down

9 HathiTrust Content HathiTrust content has been curated over time by librarians – Mirrors collections of large research libraries – Focus on quality Expanding Non-Google content – Public Domain: Copyright Review Management System – Content from non-Google sources Internet Archive, image collections, government publications

17 Collection Development and Management Collections Committee Prioritization of collection development activities Appropriate principles for duplicate volumes Process for decision-making and prioritization for new content types Recommendations for tools and services Prioritization of copyright review and rights- clearing processes Print management proposal

18 A global change in the library environment June 2010 Median duplication: 31% June 2009 Median duplication: 19% Academic print book collection already substantially duplicated in mass digitized book corpus

19 Continuing growth of overlap … ARL overlap – 31% in June 2010 – 45% by December, 2010 Oberlin Group overlap – 41% in December, 2010 – Higher rate of overlap per added volume? – Close to 50% in May, 2011

20 And yet every library is different Our median rate of overlap may be the same But our overlap profiles will differ by library Our use patterns differ Our risk profiles differ Our roles vis-à-vis our constituencies differ Thus, the need to act independently on common data

21 Extending the holdings database HathiTrust print holdings database – Basis for new cost model (overlap of in-copyright) – Basis for lawful uses (e.g., print disabilities, Section 108) – A more complete picture than elsewhere Print monograph storage proposal – Enable partners to register commitments – Establish definitions (e.g., environment, use and condition) – Build in cost-sharing: collectively fund those that make commitments – Communicate information to partners to facilitate decision-making

22 Next steps? Work to develop draft proposal underway by HathiTrust Collections Committee – Focus on monographs – Dovetail with other efforts Consideration (as part of new cost model), at Constitutional Convention in Oct. 2011

23 Changing Library Landscape Rapidly changing landscape Libraries are making these decisions but they are more and more collective decisions We cannot afford anymore to do work separately that could be done collaboratively
