In short, just under 1.5m books (but growing) are being made available, drawing on collections from selected US libraries. They are US-heavy (publishers and subjects) but tens of thousand of digitised books from the 20th century can be accessed. Many subjects are covered, including history.
Enormous thanks must go to US librarians and the Internet Archive for making this possible so quickly.
- Go to National Emergency Library and create an Internet Archive if you don’t already have one.
- Search or browse for your books.
- To see the full-text, you need to “borrow” it. You can borrow upto 10 books for 14 days.
