May 17, 2016
A few days ago we shared with you an important collection featuring a wide variety free audio books for teachers. In today’s post we are adding another equally important resource from Internet Archive. This is basically a comprehensive collection featuring thousands of libraries from all across America. The American Libraries collection provides you access to a treasure trove of educational documents, texts, monographs, research papers and several other materials. It ‘ includes material contributed from across the United States. Institutions range from the Library of Congress to many local public libraries. As a whole, this collection of material brings holdings that cover many facets of American life and scholarship into the public domain.’

This is a huge collection and you may want to use the integrated search functionality to quickly locate resources on the page. You can search for libraries by name and once you find your library click on its title to access the books digitized by the Internet Archive for that library. Within a library, you can search books and documents by title, date published/archived/reviewed, creator and views. Each book you find there comes with detailed bibliographical information and is available for download in multiple formats including: EPUB, PDF, Kind, Full Text and many more. Enjoy
