How to bulk borrow and download those borrowable-only books programmatically from the internet archive?

And how can this be done?

Is there an archive.org API for borrowing books?

1 Answer 1


Yes the Internet Archive has an API details are here.

There is a command line tool and a Python library. You will however be limited to only borrowing a total of 10 books at any time, for 14 days, and may have to join a queue for a specific title.
