Ever since agreeing to participate in the Google book scan project, John Wilkin and the University of Michigan have been looking for a way to provide access to the vast digital resources they get from the project. They have today announced the HathiTrust, which includes partners from across the country (including Minnesota). This is a great site and a great start on a tough problem: can we, together, maintain free and open access to materials from our library collections? A nice story at ArsTechnica too.
