You can build collections from the HathiTrust that you can search separately from the full HathiTrust database, providing the ability to perform focused searches on subsets of HathiTrust materials. These collections can be designated as "public" (available to anyone who goes to HathiTrust) or "private" (available only to you) and created permanently or temporarily. To create a permanent collection, you must login to HathiTrust with your Bear ID and password.
Items can be added to collections either from the "PageTurner" interface, where pages of the book are viewed, or from the search results page in "Full-text Search". In both cases, items can be added to a new or existing permanent collection, or a temporary collection (a temporary collection is automatically created if the user is not logged in).
To create a permanent collection in HathiTrust, do the following:
In the future if you want to edit, change the private/public setting, or delete the collection, your collections will always be listed in the "My Collections" tab whenever you are logged in to HathiTrust.
With this method, you can select single items to be added to your collection by going to the PageTurner for specific titles.
With this method, you can select multiple items to be added to your collection.
