Providing access to significant ANU research through HathiTrust

23 April 2020

The ANU Library has opened up access to significant ANU research through HathiTrust.

HathiTrust is a partnership of academic and research institutions, offering a collection of millions of titles digitized from libraries around the world.

We have opened up access to around 2,700 works published by the University. This research covers a broad range of subject areas: Pacific Linguistics; Strategic and Defence Studies; Pacific Archaeology; Japanese Studies; Aboriginal Economic Policy Research; Economics; Environmental Studies; and more.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation), Professor Keith Nugent believes that ANU research can help power current and future research and teaching both in Australia, and around the world.

“We are committed to providing greater access to the world class research produced here at ANU,” said Professor Nugent.

“ANU strives to reduce barriers to access information. By making this important research openly accessible, we will expose it to a global audience.”

“This will significantly improve the contribution of ANU to international research, as well as provide communities across the Asia Pacific region with access to significant material on their languages and cultures.”

The research we contributed to HathiTrust dates back to 1950, and comes from world recognised experts such as Stuart Harris, Paul Dibb, Fred Gruen, Des Ball and Helen Wilson. Materials were developed by both current and former scholarly areas from across the University including: ANU Press; the Research School of Social Sciences; Research School of Pacific Studies; Strategic and Defence Studies Centre; the Institute of Advanced Studies; and many others.

The material is now accessible through the HathiTrust website, and are currently being made available via the ANU Library Catalogue and SuperSearch.
