There’s an Elephant in the Library

HathiTrust: A Shared Digital Repository:

From the Chronicle of Higher Education:

"Google won't be around forever," said John P. Wilkin, an associate university librarian for the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and executive director of HathiTrust. "This is a commitment to the permanence of the materials," he said, noting that libraries have been around longer than any technology company has. "We've been doing this for a couple of hundred years, and we intend to continue doing it."
