Open Library Wiki Project

A group in conjunction with The Internet Archive have started work on a grand project: Every book, every language, cataloged and, when available, reproduced for the public. I played with it a bit and found the wiki very useful. Anything that is legally publishable about a book is being recorded. I read an excerpt from Toni Morrison’s Beloved and flipped through scanned pages of an out-of-print edition of Tom Sawyer (seen above). If the complete text is not available, a variety of links are given to buy and borrow the book. Oh, and they are looking for some help.
