Collection Builder in HathiTrust allows users to create their own subsets of the repository to share with others (or keep private). It is an ideal way for researchers to aggregate sources around a particular subject for classes, group projects, or personal use.
To use Collection Builder, you must be logged in to HathiTrust. Click on LOG IN, choose your home institution, and authenticate with your Calnet ID and passphrase.
Then, either from the PageTurner interface or from the full-text search search results page, you can select items to be added to a collection. When logged in, you can add items to a new or existing permanent collection, or a temporary collection. If you are not logged in, a temporary collection is created. One main advantage of saving items to a collection is that you can then perform full text searches on just this subset of HathiTrust content.
