National Emergency Library
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.
To address our unprecedented global and immediate need for access to reading and research materials, as of today, March 24, 2020, the Internet Archive will suspend waitlists for the 1.4 million (and growing) books in our lending library by creating a National Emergency Library to serve the nation’s displaced learners. This suspension will run through June 30, 2020, or the end of the US national emergency, whichever is later.
During the waitlist suspension, users will be able to borrow books from the National Emergency Library without joining a waitlist, ensuring that students will have access to assigned readings and library materials that the Internet Archive has digitized for the remainder of the US academic calendar, and that people who cannot physically access their local libraries because of closure or self-quarantine can continue to read and thrive during this time of crisis, keeping themselves and others safe.

- How do I sign up for access?
Signing up for an Internet Archive account is free and open to the world. Please visit https://archive.org/account/signup If you have any problems, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
- How do I check out a book?
You can browse our collection or search for books or authors at https://archive.org/details/nationalemergencylibrary Use the “Search this Collection” box along the left to begin. During this time of emergency, users can check out up to 10 books at a time.
- What if I’m still reading my book when my 14-day loan is up?
While waitlists are suspended you will be able to check the book out again. Once waitlists are back in place at the end of the US national emergency, users will once again join waitlists to view available copies.
- I’m an educator. Will this work for a classroom of students?
Yes. Part of our reasoning to suspend waitlists was to meet this classroom need, expressed to us by many educators and librarians as their schools closed.
