NEW category system, profile page, search results page, and book covers
Dear Zlibrary community,
We continue to inform you about new features on our site. As we've already mentioned in the previous post, we're planning to refresh the design of some pages/elements and improve the functionality.
Let's start with the preview of our new category system, a feature that we've spent a lot of time and resources on. If you're not already familiar with it, be sure to check it now. In a few words, we have divided the categories into Fiction / Non-Fiction, fundamentally revised the past categories, and added new ones. At the moment most of the books don't have categories. Unfortunately, we can't do this automatically due to technical limitations, so if you know which category a particular book belongs to, please spend a minute to put in a category using the option "Suggest a correction", thus you will help other users to find the book quickly.
Please note that some subcategories may not be displayed on the category page, because they don’t include any books. As soon as at least one book appears there, that subcategory will immediately become available. If you consider that a category/subcategory is missing, our Support Team is always open to your suggestions :)
The next equally important update is the improved profile page. We decided to place the most useful information about your account on this page. Now your download history and daily limit are displayed on your profile page as well. There you can also check your saved books, booklist, book requests.
Probably the next update could fully appreciate the registered users, because now they have access to the "Save for later" and "Add to Booklist" options directly from the search results page (appears on the hover). We guess you'll probably ask to display the "Download" button there, but we are not going to do that for a number of reasons :) In addition to quick access to these options, the search results page also displays the book's rating.
A small, but still update that turns an ordinary picture into a full-fledged book cover. Moreover, book covers can be generated automatically and such books are displayed in recommendations now.
In the end, we'd like to thank all of you for being with us and helping our library grow and develop. By posting book reviews, suggesting corrections, uploading books, and reporting bugs, you are greatly contributing to this project. Thank you! We'd especially want to highlight our most active users over the past month who find free time for us and actively participate in the life of ZLibrary.

With peace and love,
While we are at it, may I kindly ask two features?
(1) Please consider an additional slot in the details panel for each book where it can be specified for PDF files whether the file in question is a real PDF, or something converted from other formats? e.g. a drop down menu with such items as:
"Converted from ePub or variants",
"Text Only (No Formatting)")
(2) Make it possible for users to search in the global Book Request panel for criteria such as authors, publishers, etc. For example, I may be a fan of DK publishing, but I may not know about something exciting they have published some time ago. That title might have been discovered and requested by someone else in the Requests section, but given the huge number of requests that lands on that page every... minute... it is easy for it to be missed.
I think these two features will help many people.
Could you please put an option on "Book Requests" to allow us edit our requested books? It would be really useful to set wrong informations.

The only thing I didn’t understand was about the changes to BOOK COVERS. How will they change? (I hope they aren’t all changed to those ugly generic covers I see sometimes.)
Other than that, the updates look great! Thanks to such a dedicated team!
Thank u soooo much
1) Do you have OPDS catalog? Do you plan to generate it?
2) What is the best way (for your actions) to correct the wrong category of the book? Especially, if I found hundred of books in a wrong categories?
Would you please add a feature to request books using the author's name, book's title and publishing house? There are some books that don't have an ISBN number.
As for things I'd like to see renovated or added, @BimBamSmash has the right idea. Furthermore, could an option to remove books or say "Not Interested" be added in the future to refine our recommended?
I love using your services
I would suggest you add more authors. Thank you so much for your great work. ,
Keep up the good work! :-)
But there are too many versions of the same book, can you make a system that upload one book and under the book page there are others versions also available?
I am not able to make donations yet, so I would like to contribute uploading some of my papers and I always try without any sucess. I think it should be easier if you can post a step by step teaching us how to make it, I think could be easier following instructions. I am not saying that is a mistake of you, but my experience uploding that is not very good. Thank you a lot!
There is missing a category for Catholicism in Religion... there are many books.
What about sorting books? I noticed some awkard books in the children category...?
Thank you !!!
Amazing as always !
May I suggest the subcategory of "Veterinary" ? And perhaps the possibility to join 2 labels for request. For example : "Veterinary" + "Medicine"etc.
Can I suggest as further categories:
Handicraft: Paper crafts
Handicraft: Knitting & Crochet
Avete cambiato indirizzo?
To all those that download free books, please think how you would feel it you had put so much effort into your book and then found out that it was being offered free.
Couple things quick though...Save for later feature is broken and no longer saves books & above you show for registered users a 'heart' to save in search results...I do not have this.
Could there potentially be a download 'arrow' button in search results for the book(s)? Some other sites have this functionality. Bless you for this site!
Keep it up !
@Lenora Hahahahahahahahah...... oh wait, you're serious? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...
There seems to some issue with downloading the books. Please look into the matter.
One should be able to rank QUALITY of a book without need to download, since there is preview function.
When I share the link for my booklist the other person sees page can't be reached and it says 1lib.uk Please fix this server!
@potato, unfortunately, the bot is available only for books.
I am really desperate for this book but nobody has uploaded it even though I requested it.
The book is No Nonsense Spanish Workbook: Jam-packed with grammar teaching and activities from beginner to advanced intermediate levels
Thanks a lot
When I make a correction the banner bit comes in chineese. please fix this
Thanks and congratulations on your excellent page.
Why are no books on my requests being uploaded?
When (if) an another user has a book you requested they may upload it. But then also they may not want to upload or nobody has it/can find it, so there's chance you will never get what you asked for.
Can you guys add a feature in the future that allows us to save the book to a list when we're viewing that book's detail page? Thanks
Please try to get exploring science working scientifically 8 &9 then I might consider donating 50 pound a week for your extreme hard work!
Also please fix the issue regarding making a correction and how the banner appears in chineese.
I would love if there was a category for POLITICS
Has my info been ignored? If not, does it need to be approved by someone, how long does that take? I'm not going to spend my time on this if I don't see any result.
I don't want to miss this library, this site is amazing
How can I help the site? how can i be a premium member?
I love your site. I've tried to donate money, but my bank denies my debit card b/c you're offshore.
I have a question. Why is it, when I search for a book you don't have, does your site list 8-10 editions of "Reinforced Concrete Building Structures" and assorted similar books. none of which are remotely related in content to the book I searched for? Why is "Reinforced Concrete Building Structures," etc., the default filler when a book is not found in your database?
Thank you for the great work you do,
I think when you make a correction it becomes chineese please sort this
Just a thought.
Thank you for your time and anticipated response.

Please correct your bookmarks.
It seems like the new uploads are not showing in the library, neither are they in my uploads. Are they “stuck” somewhere in de process?
how excellent you are........
Thank you for that great platform
the German section holds a couple of new editions which are the worst fascist and antisemitic books if seen in years posted somewhere. please removed these books they should not be proliferated as the dont reflect a debatable "opinion". Its nothing but disgusting hate speech and nazi propaganda.
see the list here: https://b-ok.cc/booklist/29529/b7a746

When I do a search for Dutch books I get this warning for every book:
"This is a limited version of the library and Dutch books are not available here.
Please use full version of the site to download this book."
When I click on the 'full version' link I get a new webpage with the same URL and the story repeats itself.
Groundhog Day in Z-Library :-/
It happens with or without logging in. Deleting cookies doesn't help.
This never happened before.
But I am facing some problems. And the most vicious one is there is literally NO books in my booklists?!?!?!?! I hade more than 200 books there and shared my list with several of my friends. But they are now just gone!!!!!
How can I get them back the way I organized????? It's not possible to create every single list again
You end up in a virtual loop with the disclaimer:
"This is a limited version of the library and Dutch books are not available here.
Please use full version of the site to download this book." If you follow the linkt to the "full site" you get the same disclaimer
Also, when I use the Corrections, it keeps givng me messages IN CHINESE.
e.g. "谢谢你的编辑建议! 经过修改后，会出现在网站上"
Why on earth does it do this? How can I change it? Or does everyone get Chinese?
And a proper forum or place to ask questions rather then having to tag onto blog posts would be helpful. Or is there one hidden somewhere?
You can ask any question at firstname.lastname@example.org
Today I face a problem. I am able to access the website, able to type in the search box and also getting the list of the relevant books.
But after this - when I click on the book, i am not able to download it
it says - error 404. PAGE DOES NOT EXIST
I tried with books under different categories, but it shows the same error.
Can some one let me know what is the issue or the z library team can help me in fixing it

I would like to contribute by using PayPal (trusted option) but I couldn't find that option. Please make that payment option possible so I can support. Thanks.
I also downloaded a book (Blackwatertown by Paul Waters) and then realized it is totally something else (Draca by Geoffrey Gudgion) than what I wanted. The metadata, title and author on the platform is totally something else. Please see my problem alert. Thank you.
Thanks so much for all you do!

BRAVO continuez je suis fan de votre site
AND OF COURSE, huge thanks and appreciation for your million gifts of knowledge to all.
I much prefer the concept of Tags, so that an arbitrary number of tags can be linked to a title and widen the chances of finding it when looking for a specific subject.
My reasoning for this is that if someone’s going to take the time to make the corrections they’re most likely going to be improvements. There isn’t a motive to do otherwise. If someone has shown to be repeatedly inaccurate, you can then revert their accounts to the current approval process. It doesn’t make sense for legitimate corrections not to take effect immediately, especially when they are to ones you’ve uploaded or to blank fields.
My most recent attempt: I am trying to categorize a book by Françoise Vergès (it's in French, but that's beside the point). The title of the book translates to "Abolishing slavery. A colonial utopia, the ambiguities of humanitarian politics."
It tried to search, in that order:
- Slavery (No matches found)
- History (Nothing looked relevant)
- Colonialism, Racism, Humanitarian, or Humanitarianism (No matches found)
- Politics, which ended up putting it into the main category of "Society, Politics & Philosophy", subcategory "Politics".
I can make the distinction between "DC Comics Graphic Novels" or "Marvel Comics Graphic Novels", but not between "Marxist Economic Studies" or "Anarchist Politics"...
I'm not going to waste anymore time on this :-(
Could we please have ability to sort th books in the categories, by language ? It would be so much easier.
I would like to ask whether it is possible to move my favorite books to the book lists I have created, so that I can better organize them.
