The Online Books Page

This is a marvellous online listing over 2 million free books on the Web, an extremely useful source for finding rare and "lost" titles and texts of plays performed and published, also in South Africa.

According to the website The Online Books Page "is a website that facilitates access to books that are freely readable over the Internet. It also aims to encourage the development of such online books, for the benefit and edification of all.

Major parts of the site include:

1 An index of over two million online books freely readable on the Internet

2 Pointers to significant directories and archives of online texts

3 Special exhibits of particularly interesting classes of online books

4 Information on how readers can help support the growth of online books"

About the nature and history of the site, the website says:

"The Online Books Page was founded, and is edited, by John Mark Ockerbloom, He is a digital library planner and researcher at the University of Pennsylvania. He is responsible for the content of the site. Alison Miner is Associate Editor.
