HATHITRUST, ET AL.,
DECLARATION OF STANLEY KATZ IN SUPPORT OF
DEFENDANTS’ MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT
I, Stanley N. Katz, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1746, hereby declare as follows:
I am President Emeritus of the American Council of Learned Societies, the
national humanities organization in the United States, and director of the Princeton University
Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies. I graduated magna cum laude from Harvard
University in 1955 with a major in English History and Literature. I was trained in British and
American history at Harvard (M.A 1959; Ph.D. 1961) and also attended Harvard Law School
(1969-70) (although I am not a member of the bar).
I am the Editor in Chief of the Oxford International Encyclopedia of Legal
History, and the Editor of the Oliver Wendell Holmes Devise History of the United States
Supreme Court. I have served as President of the Organization of American Historians and the
American Society for Legal History and as Vice President of the Research Division of the
American Historical Association. I am a member of the Board of Trustees of the Newberry
Library. I serve as Chair of the American Council of Learned Societies/Social Science Research
Council Working Group on Cuba.
I am a member of the New Jersey Council for the
Humanities, the American Antiquarian Society, the American Philosophical Society; a Fellow of
the American Society for Legal History, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the
Society of American Historians; and a Corresponding Member of the Massachusetts Historical
Society. I received the annual Fellows Award from Phi Beta Kappa in 2010 and the National
Humanities Medal (awarded by President Obama) in 2011. My full curriculum vitae is attached
to this declaration as Exhibit A.
I am an American historian and scholar specializing in legal and constitutional
history and the history of philanthropy.
Most recently, my research has focused on the
relationship of civil society and constitutionalism to democracy and specifically on the
relationship of the United States to the international human rights regime.
I submit this declaration in support of the defendants’ motion for summary
judgment. I make this declaration based upon my own personal knowledge.
As a scholar trained to use research materials in the mid-1900s, I learned how to
use library card catalogs to extract the basic information (e.g., author, title, publication date)
about the books that may be relevant to my research. These card catalogs actually consisted of
cards stored in drawers in the library, and I would physically go to various libraries to search the
card catalogs of the books in the holdings of those libraries. Those card catalogs were of very
little use as guides to subject matter topics, for which I usually turned to subject matter
bibliographies. Unfortunately, subject matter bibliographies inevitably became quickly outdated. And for most topics, there were few or no subject matter bibliographic resources.
While many books were available in the libraries to read and study, the only
reliable source of information about what was in the text of those books was an index to the book
itself (if the book had an index). Bibliographic research – research to identify potential relevant
sources for further review – was simply a rough first cut at identifying relevant sources. The
next step was to retrieve the books (or journals), read the apparently relevant chapters (or
articles), and hope that the footnotes would guide me to additional relevant sources.
For decades as a researcher, I always feared that I was neglecting significant
bodies of material simply because I did not know certain sources might contain information
relevant to my research. Although I feared that I was missing sources, there was no way to
confirm or alleviate those fears.
The digital era changed the nature of scholarly research. A resource that became
available (and still is available) was the Online Public Access Catalogs (OPAC), which
contained electronic records of the card catalog information for library material on a global basis.
No longer did I have to go to several libraries to search the card catalogs at each of those
libraries; now I could search the OPAC and retrieve bibliographic information from the holdings
of books in virtually all the libraries of the world while sitting in front of one computer.
Another benefit of the OPAC was that I could conduct many searches, electronically, and
retrieve the results virtually instantaneously. This is in comparison to using physical card
catalogs for which searches were arduous and time consuming.
Full-text digital searching over vast quantities of text revolutionized humanities
scholarship profoundly – even more profoundly than the OPAC. Sophisticated digital searching
over the text of large numbers of books has permitted me to search for specific words or names
(or words or names in relation to each other) that simply was not possible using a library card
catalog, the electronic OPAC, or other bibliographic resources.
I have come to rely on the full-text searching of millions of books offered by the
HathiTrust, and it is now one of the most important sources for my historical scholarship. The
HatiTrust Digital Library is primarily useful to me as a bibliographical resource, since I can
tailor my searches of the items indexed by the HathiTrust quite precisely, and generate lists of
search results, or “hits,” to determine which might be worth closer examination. While some of
the hits that I get in my research are to items that provide a full-text view (i.e., I can read the
entire work on my computer screen), most are designated as “limited (search only),” and I am
not provided the text of the work online by the HathiTrust.
The hits that do not provide a full-text view are still exceedingly helpful for my
research. Those tell me how frequently words and phrases that I search occur in the book, so that
I know how relevant the book will likely be for my research. Without having to get a copy of a
book and without having to review the book I can determine which books I need to locate in a
library or purchase myself and which are not worth further consideration. Not only that, but
many of the “hits” I receive through searches of the HathiTrust are of books that I would not
have discovered through a search of a library card catalog, the OPAC, or alternative
Let me provide an example based on one of my current research projects. I am
researching for a book I am writing on the question of why the United States has had such a
difficult time participating in the international human rights system. This is primarily a problem,
as I conceive it, concerning the United States since the emergence of the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights in 1948. It is a genuinely international subject since it involves comparing
what the United States has (and has not) done with what other comparable nations have (or have
not) done. The question is one of politics, economics, and intellectual history.
One aspect of this research question involves the role of the then newly-emergent
human rights non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Searches using the OPAC did not assist
me in fully identifying books relevant to my search; and there were few additional bibliographic
resources, and those did not provide any additional help.
As I now do with most research questions, I searched in the HathiTrust, and I was
able to identify many dozens of promising-looking references to material that I was not able to
identify working with the OPAC and other bibliographic material at the Princeton research
One such book I located through the HathiTrust is Universal Human Rights:
Origins and Development. The book was published in 2007 and I identified the book through
the HathiTrust website even though the website did not provide the ability to view the full text of
the book online. Using the HathiTrust website, however, I was able to locate a copy of the book
at the Princeton library. The book contains many pages discussing the role of the United States
in relationship to the norms of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which is
particularly relevant to my research because of the tension between the United States approval of
