Agreement to participate in Open Libraries
By participating in the Open Libraries project, libraries, together, are building an at-scale controlled digital lending service to provide digital learners and print-disabled patrons access to digital versions of books residing in their stacks.
Internet Archive’s Open Libraries project offers the prospect of making every library’s collection into a digital collection by allowing a library to lend a digital version of physical volumes they own. Our priority is to provide access to books that are not yet available in digital form.
Leveraging the Internet Archive’s controlled digital lending platform we aim to eventually offer access to four million books, through purchase or digitization, while honoring the rights of creators using digital rights management software.
