French 348: Fashion's Empires


HathiTrust is a partnership of academic and research institutions, offering an open access searchable collection of millions of titles digitized from libraries around the world. Books and periodicals (journals) that are in the public domain are available full text. Because Vassar is a member library, Vassar users can create their own individual accounts on the site and create collections (or bookshelves) of books and periodicals for sharing and reference. Digital copies of many rare books and periodicals available in special collections, including Vassar's, are available in HathiTrust. See this guide for more information.
