National Emergency Library
The Internet Archive has assembled the National Emergency Library, which is a collection of books that supports emergency remote teaching, research activities, independent scholarship, and intellectual stimulation while universities, schools, training centers, and libraries are closed. The Emergency Library is meant to meet a specific, extraordinary need - universities, school, and libraries around the world are closed and people cannot access the physical materials within. While the Internet Archive serves the world, it operates in the United States and is taking the extraordinary measure to suspend waitlists on its lending collection through the duration of the US national emergency to meet the educational and inspirational needs of a global community of readers and learners. Its collection includes over 1.4 million eBooks from the 1920s-1990s, acquired and digitized by the Internet Archive, that are not covered by other ebook collections. It does not include textbooks. Anyone can set up an account and borrow for free for 14 days.
