Metadata Sharing and Use Policy 2019

In June 2019, the Board of Governors approved the HathiTrust Policy on Metadata Sharing and Use. This commitment to broader sharing of metadata is significant for research, discovery, and dissemination of the scholarship under our collective stewardship. The HathiTrust Metadata Policy, Strategy, Use and Sharing Advisory Group (MUSAG) prepared the Policy for approval by the Program Steering Committee and the Board of Governors. 

No actions are required by members at this time. In August 2019, the Program Steering Committee established a Metadata Sharing Policy Task Force to determine additional tasks required for implementation of the policy for each specific metadata type. See the full announcement of the Policy from PSC chair Karla Strieb (October 9, 2019).
