Q: Did my access to Internet Archive change?
Answered by: Laura Sider

Internet Archive has decided to close their National Emergency Library, effective June 16th, 2020.

Yale Library patron access to Internet Archive will change in the following ways:

  1. The number of concurrent users will be limited by title.
  2. You may only borrow up to five books at a time.
  3. Books can be checked out for 14 days with the ability to renew.
  4. If all available copies are “checked out,” patrons have the option to be placed on a waitlist. They will be notified when the title is available for checkout.

Note: Yale Library patrons have to create a personal Internet Archive account in order to borrow books.Still have questions? Contact
