The Open Library NC Project

Open Library

The Open Library NC Project is a collaboration between the Internet Archive and NC LIVE. Because of this collaboration, all of North Carolina has access to a large-scale shared downloadable eBook collection called the Open Library eBook Lending Collection. The eBooks in this collection are digital scans of books contributed by libraries around the country.

In exchange for this borrowing access, NC LIVE asked member libraries to contribute books. These books are are scanned by the Internet Archive and added to the collection as downloadable eBooks.

The contribution phase of open library has ended. A big "thank you!" to all of the libraries who contributed--you can see the full list below. Together NC LIVE libraries contributed over 1,000 titles to the Open Library eBook Lending Collection.

All books contributed to Open Library by NC LIVE member libraries have been scanned by the Internet Archive, and are being converted into eBooks and added to Open Library.

If you have any question or suggestions, please contact the NC LIVE Help Desk.
