Announcing the National Emergency Library, 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:


Who can use the library? This is a global pandemic, is your library open to everyone?

Yes, the Internet Archive loans digitized books to the world.  Our digital library is free to read for anyone with an internet connection, anywhere in the world.  We are a global library.


Why is it called a “National Emergency” Library when it’s open to the world?

We wanted to be very clear about the duration of this emergency library.  It 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 we serve the world, we operate in the United States, and so we are taking the extraordinary measure to suspend waitlists on our 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.
