Internet Archive is a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more. Some of it will be duplicated elsewhere, but you can also find some real treasures here if you search carefully.
If you use the institutional login for HathiTrust you will be able to download a pdf of the books that are beyond copyright protection. Just as a reminder, full-text access is available for federal government documents (irregardless of date) and American books/journals published before 1923. Books later than that are available in limited view - but you can still keyword search inside the text to see if your search term is included and then look for the book in the library catalog.
