Poetry and Reading at ibiblio

Concerning tastes in pleasure there can be no final judgment, but for the bookman it may be said, beyond any other sportsman, he has the most constant satisfaction, for to him there is no close season...

Ian Maclaren, 1850 - 1907
Books and Bookmen from The Gutenberg Project.

Project Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg.

Project Gutenberg is the internet's oldest best producer of free electronic books. Project Gutenberg is the brainchild of Michael Hart, who in 1971 decided to make famous and important texts freely available to everyone in the world. Since its inception he has been joined by hundreds of volunteers who share his vision. Now, more than thirty years after its humble beginnings, Project Gutenberg houses over 6000 complete electronic versions of important literary and scientific texts. Project Gutenberg features materials from over 20 languages in dozens of formats. Over one million free eBooks will be available online from Project Gutenberg by the start of the next decade.

The Open Book Project

The Open Book Project.

The Open Book Project is aimed at the educational community and seeks to encourage and coordinate collaboration among students and teachers for the development of high quality, freely distributable textbooks and educational materials on a wide range of topics. The advent of the Internet and the World Wide Web are making collaboration among educators on a global scale possible for the first time. The OBP wants to harness this exciting technology to promote learning and sharing.

The Library of Southern Literature

The Library of Southern Literature.

The Library of Southern Literature documents the riches and diversity of the United States' Southern experience as presented in one hundred of its most important literary works. The goal of the Library of Southern Literature is to make one hundred of the most important works of Southern literature available for teaching and research. Southerners comprise one third of the U.S. population, but only recently have scholars and the general public begun to explore fully the riches and diversity of Southern experience. The texts for the Library of Southern Literature come primarily from the Academic Affairs Library of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Southern Historical Collection is one of the largest collections of Southern manuscripts in the country, while the North Carolina Collection provides the most complete printed documentation of a single state anywhere.

The Internet Poetry Archive

The Internet Poetry Archive logo.

The Internet Poetry Archive makes available selected poems from a number of contemporary poets. The goal of the project is to make poetry accessible to new audiences (at little or no cost) and to give teachers and students of poetry new ways of presenting and studying these poets and their texts. The archive includes the work of living poets from around the world. The initial unit features eight poets, including Philip Levine and Nobel Prize winners Seamus Heaney and Czeslaw Milosz. Using the newest capabilities of the Internet to present sound and graphics as well as text, the archive entry for each poet comprises audio clips of the poet reading several poems, the poet's comments on the works, a photograph of the poet and any other graphics that would help a reader understand the poem (e.g., a map or illustration of a particular place mentioned in the poem), texts of the poems, a critical biography of the poet prepared by a scholar familiar with the poet's work, and a short bibliography. Poems are presented in their original languages, as well as in English translation.


The Wikinfo logo.

Wikinfo, also known as the Internet-Encyclopedia, is an international project to create a universal open content encyclopedia. The site was launched in July, 2003, and there are currently 24,643 Wikinfo articles, with Wikipedia articles available via XML import. Inspired by Wikipedia, Wikinfo differs in a number of ways, notably in editorial policy. At Wikinfo, the main article on any subject is written from a sympathetic point of view.

The Series Zealot

The Series Zealot.

They tried to tell you it was bad for you, that series fiction was uninspired and that it retarded intellectual growth. But you didn't listen, you rebel, you. You read on, one Sweet Valley High or Nancy Drew after the other. And maybe, just maybe, you kept reading. Long after the other kids had sold their well thumbed copies at yard sales, you guiltily checked out Sweet Valley University from the library. You think that maybe you should be reading something "better", but you just can't get into War and Peace this year. Series touches you more than any classic; but no one wants to hear it. Who will stand up for the body of literature that unites you with countless others?
Enter. . . The Series Zealot.
