Have you heard of HathTrust Digital Library, a so-called “scholarly” version of Google Books? Do you know it includes millions of online books, many of which are in East Asian languages? And do you know search results of this database can be varied from different institutions? This workshop will give you an overview of HathiTrust Digital Library including its content and functionality, show & tell East Asian sources in HathiTrust, and share with you search tips and experiences with this huge digital library.

Please come to join us! We hope to make this as an informal gathering, where we can all share experiences and tips together.
