At our campus it's definitely the library that is working with Hathi Trust. Probably yours as well.

I've consistently found librarians to be among the best campus people to work with. They understand the importance of accessibility even when they don't know how to achieve it. Plus, they love helping people find answers to their questions.

I'd begin by walking into the library and finding the first librarian you can talk to. I'll bet they'll get you headed in the right direction.

I am fairly new to alternate format services. I would like some input on the pros of working with the campus library and how I can build a relationship with them. Are they the right people to learn more about Hathi Trust and how it can be utilized for our students? I as thinking of sending an email to the University Librarian to introduce myself and request a meeting but I don't even know where to start. Thank so much for any input or advice.
