Trent University Library Donation

An initiative undertaken by the Bata Library has seen 250,000 books donated to the Internet Archive to be digitized and preserved for easy access by all students and future generations as part of the transformation of Trent University’s iconic library into a true library of the future. The donation of books to the Internet Archive for digitization has allowed Trent University students and faculty to continue to have access to resources once held at the Bata Library and at the same time provide access to readers worldwide through the Open Libraries Controlled Digital Lending program. The material is now held in the physical collection of the Internet Archive, and will appear here in digital form as they are digitized and made available to borrow.
