This is pretty nifty. Hathi Trust is a digital repository of materials being scanned at research libraries. (Hathi is the Hindi word for “elephant.”) You can get the fulltext of out-of-copyright books and government publications. I found examples of old government documents with fulltext in Hathi Trust, but not in Google nor Google Books. I’ll be using this a lot, I suspect.

Great resources! Thanks Carol for posting it.
Yes, very cool. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Carol. It’s nice to know these institutions are collaborating to provide an alternative to Google Books.
