HathiTrust 2016 Member Meeting

Big Ten Center, Chicago

8:00AM-3:00 PM

November 10, 2016

The 2016 HathiTrust Members Meeting will be held on November 10, 2016 at the Big Ten Center in Rosemont, IL.   Attendees will learn more about HathiTrust’s collections plans, our shared print, federal documents, and copyright review programs.  The HathiTrust Research Center will present on their developing services and outreach programs, and a panel of members will relate HathiTrust’s activities to their own.  Unfortunately, because of space constraints we can reserve only one spot for a representative of each HathiTrust member library.

Registration details have been sent to member representatives.

There is no charge to attend the meeting, but we will ask attendees to RSVP by October 21, 2016.  Background materials will be sent in advance of the meeting.
