Digital libraries that we can consult for free

In this article today we present some libraries that have digitized their content to offer us totally free knowledge and 100% legal download and consultation. If you want to know what they are, pay close attention to what follows. They are of great help to both readers and writers.

Digital Libraries

World digital library

This is the Library of the United States Congress and Unesco. It is known as the WDL and in it you can find great historical and cultural information (Asian, American, European, etc.) completely free of charge and in different languages.

Highly recommended for those looking for historical data to set their novels.

Gutemberg project

A collection that you like on your own website they indicate, it has been prepared by thousands of volunteers. In it we can have access to more than 20.000 digital books, and more than 100.000 if we join the websites that are affiliated and that we can find on their website.

Also legal downloads, totally free and also in a large number of different formats for our ebooks and electronic devices. But if you want to help, you can leave your donation of 1 euro. Not expensive if we take into account the great content that we have free access to, right?

Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes

If you want to look for curious facts about history, look for poetry, learn about the lives of great artists and everything related to literature, especially Spanish and Latin American, this is your website. A website very careful and elaborate that offers us all this, again, totally free for our enjoyment.

Virtual Library of Bibliographic Heritage

It is a project born in the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports, which offers us all kinds of collections of manuscripts and printed books that are part of the Spanish Historical Heritage. It is quite good since here we can find data that, due to its characteristics, can be quite tedious and complicated to search.

If you want to keep an eye on it, visit it here!.

National Library of Spain

Another website in which we are allowed to consult, download or read a large number of documents, files, drawings, photographs, maps, engravings, etc., free of charge for any user.

In addition, they will constantly inform you of the services and cultural activities that you can find in various parts of our country. All with hairs and signs, detailing the days and hours. A very complete website.

Cyber ​​library

«Cyber ​​library» it was a project started by the Bancaja Foundation. In it, we have totally free access to more than 45.000 literary, scientific and technical texts, in addition to being able to visit the hundreds of virtual libraries that are affiliated and with immediate access through this platform. For this reason, «Ciberoteca» is known as «The library of libraries».

A fact to highlight and something that I personally like a lot is that in it we can see which author is chosen as "author of the month". In this way we are always learning and always seeking knowledge of everything, like those authors who are totally unknown to us and who nevertheless have created wonderful works.

What do you think of these digital libraries? It is wonderful to walk in a library among thousands and thousands of books. Observe them, select one, pick it up, look at it, touch it… But it is also just as or even more wonderful, being able to access this sublime amount of information with just a couple of clicks, don't you think? Never before did we have access to so much information as now ...
