The World Online: The Emergency Library

Finishing up the semester and continuing research has had many unique challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Did you know that there is an Emergency Library to help? With a huge variety of materials in numerous languages, the EL is a unique opportunity to access information.

Created by Internet Archive, on March 24th their resources were opened up for temporary public, international access. Their announcement can be found here: http://blog.archive.org/2020/03/24/announcing-a-national-emergency-library-to-provide-digitized-books-to-students-and-the-public/

Their Blog and Projects tabs also connect to a number of like-minded pages and groups. From NASA’s image archives to rare Louis Armstrong recordings, this is the internet at its finest.
