National Emergency Library

The Internet Archive has suspended waitlists for the 1.4 million (and growing) books in its lending library by creating a National Emergency Library. This suspension will run through June 30, 2020, or the end of the US national emergency, whichever is later. For more information, see the Internet Archive’s announcement.

When you use the Mason OER Metafinder search tool, you will now have the option to include this expansive resource in your search parameters.
