OpenTexts.World Provides Access to Over 8 Million Digitized Texts


OpenTexts.World is an experimental service that provides free access to digitised text collections from around the world. Think of it as a search engine for books.

Every year, libraries worldwide digitise hundreds of thousands of books. Open Texts brings (some of!) those collections together, allowing you to search across a multitude of different libraries worldwide.

What’s on our shelves

8 million items
If you put them all on one very long bookshelf, they’d keep going for over 100 miles!

85 languages
From Middle German to Tagalog, if someone’s written it down, it’s probably here.

15th century onward
We have records from as early as 1455 through to many more modern books.
