Initially, the Submission Information Packages (SIPs) deposited into HathiTrust were extremely uniform, being constituted primarily of books digitized by Google. HathiTrust’s ingest validation processes were correspondingly highly regular, designed to ensure that these SIPs met agreed-upon qualities and specifications. As HathiTrust has expanded to include materials digitized from other sources, SIPs have become more varied in their content and specifications, introducing the need to make adjustments to ingest and validation routines. One of the primary sources of new SIPs is the …
