SAA Opens Access to Publications through HathiTrust

Historical Date: 
In a happy example of the power of unanticipated consequences, the HathiTrust Digital Library has released a treasure trove of publications from the out-of-print catalog of the Society of American Archivists. The publications were digitized by Google in its various large-scale conversion partnerships with research universities. SAA authorized HathiTrust to release the publications under a Creative Commons license, making them freely and openly accessible in digital form.
