Internet archive gives all 1.4 Million Plus rare Books under National Emergency Library for free! - Grab your copy

Internet archive (better known as archive.org), one of the Organization who fights for the motto knowledge should be free is back again to help people who wish to gain knowledge for free. This time under the name of National Emergency Library by using the Covid-19 pandemic.  

I don't know what you are talking about, What exactly is this archive.Org ?


Archive.org is a non profit Organization, and they are actually working to preserve the digital copy of the internet (rare collections specifically), you can use this site archive.org to get almost any content which was now removed or updated. For example : If you want to know how google page looked like in 2001 then you can check that site, you will get it. Not only that, you can get a rare movie, song,etc which was not available on other sites there..

Imagine, how much data they might have, now😐😐

Why National Emergency Library ?



Internet archive gives all 1.4 Million Plus Books under National Emergency Library for free! - Grab your copy


As said earlier, this site has lot of rare books that are available and not available commercially so there was a system earlier where users can borrow books from others by joining waitlist , which some what not violates any copyright of the authors. But now due to this covid issue, the site says, waitlist time takes longer than usual, which is not acceptable. So, they had introduced this option where users doesn't need to wait they can access any books from their 1.4 Million + library collections for free.. 


This library brings together all the books from Phillips Academy Andover and Marygrove College, and much of Trent University’s collections, along with over a million other books donated from other libraries to readers worldwide that are locked out of their libraries.
And the next question, that comes in our mind, what ! Are the copyrighted contents served for free?

Hmm yes!, Copyrighted contents are contents are served for free ! We live in a society where everything was made up of Money. Of course, Money is needed for everything mainly to survive, i'm not denying that fact ! but there are people who can't afford $150 for a book, so this is for those people. 

Archive.Org also encourages users to buy books if you are in a position to buy books.!

We recognize that authors and publishers are going to be impacted by this global pandemic as well. We encourage all readers who are in a position to buy books to do so, ideally while also supporting your local bookstore. If they don’t have the book you need, then Amazon or Better World Books may have copies in print or digital formats. We hope that authors will support our effort to ensure temporary access to their work in this time of crisis. We are empowering authors to explicitly opt in and donate books to the National Emergency Library if we don’t have a copy.

If you are one of the author, doesn't want this to be done, then you can contact them directly to remove your book. ( Link.)  

And if you are the one who wish to get access to rarest books mainly of 20th century then its time for you to grab your copy! Go get it done here..


With this National Emergency Library, Internet archive's dream of making all the library at the user's finger tip is undeniable.
