National Emergency Library (New Stuff Tuesday)

National Emergency Library (Internet Archive)

Internet Archive logo

In response to library across the world closing their physical locations, The Internet Archive is making available 1.4 million books to meet people’s needs. The bulk of this collection was already available through the Internet Archive. What is unique is they are removing waitlists in order to provide access to everyone without wait. This collection will be available worldwide until the end of June or when the United States declares the covid-19 emergency is over. According to Internet Archive, this collection “supports emergency remote teaching, research activities, independent scholarship, and intellectual stimulation while universities, schools, training centers, and libraries are closed.”

For more info about this collection, check out The Internet Archive’s FAQ.
