Internet Archive / Open Library

The Internet Archive and its Open Library project provide controlled digital lending access to copies of a substantial number of juvenile and young adult literature titles. (Note that the Internet Archive generally doesn't provide access to titles less than five years old.)  Books can be borrowed for one hour or 14 days, depending on the number of copies stored in the IA physical collection.  Borrowing a copy of a book  requires signing up for an Internet Archive account.  Access available for authorized print disabled patrons.  Here are several ways to begin to explore what is available.
