National Emergency Library

Das Internet Archive hat eine weltweit für alle zugängliche kostenlose Leihbibliothek namens National Emergency Library mit 1,4 Mio. urheberrechtlich geschützten Titeln eröffnet (via Internet Archive Blogs und netbib):

„To address our unprecedented global and immediate need for access to reading and research materials, as of today, March 24, 2020, the Internet Archive will suspend waitlists for the 1.4 million (and growing) books in our lending library by creating a National Emergency Library to serve the nation’s displaced learners. This suspension will run through June 30, 2020, or the end of the US national emergency, whichever is later.“

“Is this legal? All this falls under fair use, at least for the duration, is the thinking here. As the copyright lawyer Kyle Courtney has pointed out, libraries have copyright superpowers that they can use in an emergency like this one. Other collections should follow Kahle’s lead. Factiva, jstor: unlock the gates.

Has this ever happened before? Not that I know of, but maybe there’s a book in the National Emergency Library that will contradict me. It reminds me a little, though, of the Council on Books in Wartime, a collection of libraries, booksellers, and publishers, founded in 1942. William Warder Norton, of W. W. Norton & Company, was chair of the council, which issued a statement declaring that “books are useful, necessary, and indispensable.” F.D.R. agreed, writing to Norton, “a war of ideas can no more be won without books than a naval war can be won without ships.” The council picked over a thousand volumes, from Virginia Woolf’s “The Years” to Raymond Chandler’s “The Big Sleep,” and sold the books, around six cents a copy, to the U.S. military, as Armed Services Editions, books for soldiers and sailors and Army nurses and anyone else in uniform. As Yoni Appelbaum wrote in The Atlantic a few years ago, the council effectively gave away more than a hundred and twenty million books—their very best titles—and created a nation of readers. Emily Graff, who was, a long time ago, a student of mine but who is now an editor at Simon & Schuster, once went to the council’s archives at Princeton to read the letters written to the council by servicemen and women. One ship captain wrote, “We live on books.” (My emphasis)

Niels Boeing: Alles auf null

Broschiert, 128 Seiten 978-3-89401-747-7, 12,00 €

... opac20 ... cool20 ... xx20

Niels Boeing, 48, Mitglied des Aktionsbetriebs LOMU – local organized multitude, aktiv im Hamburger Netzwerk »Recht auf Stadt«, Reisender und Journalist u. a. für Die Zeit, Freitag, Technology Review. Zuletzt erschien von ihm 2011 bei Edition Nautilus Alles auf null. Gebrauchsanweisung für die Wirklichkeit.

»Die Uhr tickt. Oder ist eine Bombe in der Gegenwart? Draußen verändert sich etwas, und es fühlt sich nicht gut an.«

Eine Inventur tut not: Niels Boeing nimmt sie in 99 Behauptungen auf 99 Seiten vor. Vom Leben in der Stadt als kritischer Flaneur oder als Beobachter am Schreibtisch, über Versuche, das Leben – und die Stadt – besser zu machen, von Kunstprojekten und Happenings, von Politik und Liebe berichtet er. Es ist an der Zeit, sich selbst als Bürger, als Konsument, als Mensch in die Waagschale zu werfen. Jede Überlegung spitzt sich in einem Slogan zu. »Profit sucks.« »Der Ausnahmezustand ist bereits eingetreten.« »Die wichtigste Technologie ist Zuhören.« »Opposition ist nicht genug.« »Zivilisation ist eine Kettenreaktion.« »Desertiert haufenweise.« So wird durchgespielt, wo und wofür eine kritische, intellektuelle Generation heute, nach ’68, nach ’89, steht.

Alles auf Null legt die Spielräume und Kampfzonen frei, die auf dem Weg aus dem Kapitalismus zu durchqueren sind. »Niels Boeing hat die Warterei schon lange satt. Sie entspricht nicht seinem Temperament. In diesem Buch fragt er nach Möglichkeiten. Nach der massenhaften Produktion von Unterscheidung und Möglichkeiten. Vielleicht halten Sie das für eine geringe Ambition. Doch es ist mehr, als wir von den meisten aktuellen Texten erwarten können.« Oliver Fahrni (Nachwort)

Dear Internet Archive Supporter


You’ve come to us seeking the facts. To access to good and reliable information. Now we come to you. We need your help. Maybe now more than ever.

For those of us who believe that facts matter, this year has been a nightmare. Fake news is poisoning the internet and poisoning our minds.

We need to guarantee access to true information, to published information, to historically accurate information that is increasingly important, but in short supply. We need libraries that can be a trusted source for fact checkers, scholars and citizens.

When I founded the Internet Archive twenty years ago, people thought I was crazy. They didn’t think the stuff on the Web was worth saving. I made the Internet Archive a nonprofit because I wanted it to be a library built on trust. The Web belongs to all of us. Our mission is to provide everyone with access to knowledge. Forever.

Today, the Internet Archive has only 150 staff but runs one of the top-250 websites in the world. We could sell ads, but to me that doesn’t feel right. We take your privacy very seriously, so we don’t even collect your IP address. But we still need to pay for the increasing costs of servers, staff and rent.

You may not know this, but your support fueled the work of journalists who used our Political TV Ad Archive in their fact-checking of candidates’ claims.

It keeps the Wayback Machine going, saving 750 million Web pages each week, so no one will ever be able to change the past just because there is no digital record of it.

Recently, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said “the Wayback Machine, it’s a national treasure, it’s an international’s always the first place you go.” And now we are making the Wayback Machine even better, by adding web site search for the first time.

We can do all of this because of you. You keep us going and growing.

If the Internet Archive continues to be useful to you, please take a minute to donate $50, $75, $100 or whatever you can. During this month, a generous supporter will match your donation, dollar-for-dollar. For every dollar you donate, the Internet Archive will receive $2. Help us keep improving for another year. I promise you—It will be money well spent.

Donate today! Thank you,

Brewster Kahle Founder & Digital Librarian
