The Humanities Text Initiative, a unit of the University of Michigan's Digital Library Production Service, has provided online access to full text resources since 1994. The Humanities Text Initiative (HTI) is an umbrella organization for the creation, delivery, and maintenance of electronic texts, as well as a mechanism for furthering the library community's capabilities in the area of online text.

The collections on this site are freely available to the Internet community. Resources which are restricted to use by University faculty, staff, and students only can be found at the DLPS List of all Collections page.

This site is made possible in part by a generous equipment grant from Sun MicroSystems Inc.
