• I should probably add, be cautious regarding attaining free books...some sites are doing this because they are illegally copying or downloading them to their site. I believe the z-library site while it is still up online, I'm not sure if your library will be free of charges if you download something here.

  • While this is not about Grants, it is a note about resources for building library colllections.   This work has been downloaded 257 times since placed on Purdue's free articles/authors download site.

    A recent inquiry on this site church libraries network was asking about free ebooks. Using the strings "free religious books" and "free religious ebooks" will get you to sites which have offers of such free books as well as additional links to such free materials. For collection building it is worth the effort and may open new resources not shown in the above article. --Paul T. Jackson
