National Academic Press
The National Academies Press (NAP) was created by the National Academies to publish the reports issued by the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council, all operating under a charter granted by the Congress of the United States. The NAP publishes more than 200 books a year on a wide range of topics in science, engineering, and health, capturing the most authoritative views on important issues in science and health policy. The institutions represented by the NAP are unique in that they attract the nation’s leading experts in every field to serve on their award-wining panels and committees. The nation turns to the work of NAP for definitive information on everything from space science to animal nutrition.
ACLS Humanities E-Books
The ACLS Humanities E-Book Project is an online, fully searchable collection of high-quality books in humanities, recommended and reviewed by educators and featuring unlimited multi-user access.
Project Gutenberg is the brainchild of Michael Hart, who in 1971 decided that it would be a really good idea if lots of famous and important texts were freely available to everyone in the world. Since then, he has been joined by hundreds of volunteers who share his vision. Now, almost thirty years later, Project Gutenberg publishes an average of one e-text every day!
Free online books for students, teachers, and the classic enthusiast.

The Online Library of Liberty (OLL)
The Liberty Fund would like to make the classic texts which contributed to our modern understanding of the nature of limited government, individual liberty, and the free market more accessible to scholars, students and other interested individuals. The aim is to put online both facsimiles of these classic texts (in PDF format) as well as searchable HTML versions. These texts can be read on their own or in conjunction with numerous study aides such as short biographies of key authors, bibliographies, thematic and historical essays, and course syllabi.
