#MondayMusings – Thousands of Historic Books Online
If you’re a writer of historical fiction, a fan of genealogy or need to do some history research for a writing project– Here is a treasure trove of content recently scanned and available online from the Library of Congress. Even better news is that it is free!
Nearly 60,000 books prized by historians, writers and genealogists, many too old and fragile to be safely handled, have been digitally scanned as part of the first-ever mass book-digitization project of the U.S. Library of Congress (LOC), the world’s largest library. Anyone who wants to learn about the early history of the United States, or track the history of their own families, can read and download these books for free.
