Dear Colleagues -

My technical readers should note that just at e.g.
this collection includes many classics, such as Claude Shannon's
"Mathematical Theory of Communications" (1948), Brendan Kehoe's
"Zen and the Art of the Internet", William Mitchell's "City of
Bits" and much else. And even more if your interests go beyond
technology. ;>

Also note, that as always on the Web, the book listing are
incomplete, especially as regards "books" written for the Web, such
as a couple of favorites on liquid crystals
and an intro to logic for liberal arts and business
and much else.  --PJK

On-Line Books Page
Originally reviewed in the July 1, 1994 Scout Report, the On-Line
Books Page has expanded considerably in the intervening six years.
Edited by John Mark Ockerbloom since its inception, the site has
moved with him in 1999 from Carnegie Mellon to Penn and has
increased its listings from about 300 when Scout first visited the
site to over 12,000 today. The site only indexes books (all located
at other sites) that are full text, free, and not copyrighted.
Users can search the listings by author and title, or browse by
author, title, subject, new listings, or by serial archives. The
site also offers three special exhibits: A Celebration of Women
Writers, Banned Books On-Line, and Prize Winners On-Line (under
construction). In addition, the site includes a collection of links
to other electronic text resources and a list of works in
preparation is also provided. An excellent portal for e-books of
all kinds.
