Friday Free Stuff: Project Gutenberg and Distributed Proofreaders

Project Gutenberg: Your Free Digital Library: Fine Literature Digitally Re-Published
In a conversation this week (Facebook login required) on the Library page on Facebook, we mentioned Project Gutenberg, where you can download thousands of public domain ebooks for your computer or e-reader.

Did you know you can help create these ebooks? On Distributed Proofreaders you can sign in to choose a book that interests you and proofread a single page, or as many pages as you like.

Other options there include:
  • formatting a single page with italics, footnotes, etc;
  • smoothreading a nearly-ready ebook to catch the last remaining typos;
  • getting really involved and managing your own project!
("Friday Free Stuff" is to be a weekly feature - let us know about any free information resources you think we should profile!)
