The libraries presented in this article were first discussed in the comments of the Part 9 article and need to be presented in their own article.
Collections of Books and Articles out of Copyright
The Survivor Library is a library of about 15,000 books in PDF files that are all out of copyright or are otherwise in the public domain. The author of this site, who is known as The Librarian, is a very friendly fellow and his blog articles are interesting. The site is organized into a hierarchy of folders and subfolders as categories. You can freely download as many or as few PDF books as you like.
“The library contains thousands of books on technologies that can be produced by most reasonably skilled craftsman using tools not as sophisticated as what can be found in many modern home workshops.”
A complete copy of the current collection is available to purchase on a flash drive or on multiple DVD disks. The price for these seem very reasonable to me. I purchased the flash drive last summer and it contained 14,656 files in 175 folders/categories and consumed 224GB. It’s not clear to me how I can go about finding books added since I purchased the flash drive so I can download the new addition.
