The great internet library in «open day» for the confinement
Internet Archive offers 1.4 million books for free
Video games, movies, series and other content have already been released in recent weeks. A measure for entertain and help to all users in this compulsory closure. The latest to join the initiative has been the Internet Archive after publishing in the last hours the National Emergency Library, a library with more than a million books. This library has thousands of books in Spanish and are freely accessible to everyone, as long as they have an internet connection.
Internet Archive is the great dig libraryital, well known for its tool that allows you to view old versions of web pages. Now it has thousands of digitized books with unrestricted access across the planet. This temporary measure, only available until June 30, eliminates the waiting list to access the digital copy of books stored in the National Emergency Library and “will supply all copies requested.”
The National Emergency Library catalog has little more than 1.4 million digitized books. A figure to which must be added about 2.5 million books that are in the public domain and have no waiting list.
The initiative of the Internet Archive is justified, according to its creators, in being able to supply the demand by students. Researchers and more who are unable to obtain the necessary books and materials from libraries at this time due to restrictive measures in the movement.
In the selection of the more than 1.4 million titles, the organization has awarded those that are not currently available in digital format.
