Creation of a full text library of rare books without copyright with free access.


Wikipedia should create a library with digitized images of rare books without copyright that might get lost because only few examples remain in circulation. The images (stored as PDFs) should be available for free.


Protection and maintenance for cultural artifacts of humanity.

Key questions

  • Who can provide such images (libraries? individual?) - I (the author is anonymous, annotation of the translator) could make something available from my library.

Potential costs
