So much National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) news so few days to post!
Well, in this case, it falls into the category of not “new” news and it was news to me!
Did you know that
has an eBook collection? I didn’t! I am well aware of its print publications
collection including microfilm catalogs, guides, general information leaflets
(GIL) and more ... NARA
As usual, I was on the trail of something unrelated when I stumbled across this collection.
Here is an example of the available formats for the publication Making Their Mark: Stories Through Signatures.
I just had to explore further as now I was curious to know if the Library of Congress (LOC), the Smithsonian, etc, have eBook collections.
- Library of Congress E-books
- Smithsonian Library Books Online & a new book, Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in a Digital Age
Do you know of any other national
institutions that have eBook collections? U.S.
Editor’s Note: Of course, we always recommend the Internet Archive as a wonderful source for FREE access to ebooks and texts! The gateway page gives you a great sense of what institutions are represented.
