The Lily Surface Scrapper addon for Blender 2.8 is the most convenient way to import textures in Blender. No need anymore to download a big library and this way you can build up your own library way more consistent. After an introduction of the addon, I show you tips on how to get a better material library.
It works really simple. First save your Blend-file. Then browse to a website like https://cc0textures.com/. For example a link like this: https://cc0textures.com/view.php?tex=Ground27. Copy that link in the address-bar of your Browser, and past that link in the Lily Scrapper Addon. The addon will ask you then what variant you would like (2K, 4K, 8K). Then the addon will download the texture and setup a node-tree for you.
You can download the Lily Surface Scrapper addon on Github. Install is as usual. So that means download .zip file and in Blender you go to Edit > Preferences > Addons > Install. Then browser to the .zip file you just downloaded and press Install. Finally activate, save preferences and refresh. For more information check the thread on Blenderartists.org.
