HathiTrust’s Federal Documents Program

HathiTrust’s U.S. Federal Government Documents Program can be utilized by all Clemson students, faculty, and staff. The program expands and enhances digital access to U.S. federal publications, including those issued by GPO and other federal agencies. HathiTrust currently has 1.3 million federal documents digitalized (contributed by over 40 institutions) and 15,000 more are added each year. The goals of this program are:

  • Comprehensive digital collection: Build a comprehensive HathiTrust digital collection of federal documents distributed in print format by the Government Publishing Office as part of the Federal Depository Library Program.
  • Enduring access: Ensure that the benefits of HathiTrust work in areas such as improved quality, shared print collection management, collection development, enhanced resource discovery, and broader access to scholarly materials are realized in the HathiTrust federal documents collection and services.
  • Community: In collaboration with stakeholders within HathiTrust and in the greater community, solve shared problems related to identifying, cataloging, digitizing, organizing, preserving, hosting, and providing access to U.S. federal documents.
