The Internet Archive is doing its part during the Covid-19 outbreak by suspending its waitlists and creating a National Emergency Library to help serve what it calls displaced learners. From now through June 30, 2020, or until the end of the US national emergency (whichever is later), the Internet Archive will lend out books from its growing digital library of more than 1.4 million titles without imposing any wait times. Despite the correlation to the US emergency timeline, the books are available to users worldwide and are in addition to the 2.5 million fully downloadable public domain books that do not require waitlists to view.
