A digital library, electronic library or virtual library is a storage space where texts in digital format can be found. There are basically two types of digital library: those in image format, whose user-friendliness is lesser and text format.

Image Format

Project Gutenberg's Distributed Proofreaders uses and maintain a comprehensive list of online image libraries[1].

Text Format

Text format libraries are fewer on the Internet. Here is where you can find text format books:

  • Project Gutenberg (see their sites under the article)
  • Ebooks libres et gratuits (biggest French ebooks producer)
