Here is a link to an on-line library of useful books.
Does anyone else have a link to another useful library that they use?

G'day Mike, Everyone :)
This one is very new, and while it is not a 'library', it is one that I will be keeping an eye on:
The links page provides a portal to some very interesting comments/articles.

Some great links - but I need a couple of lifetimes more to read all I want to read and do all I want to do!!

I stumbled across this one in my travels recently, and have found it to be a very user-friendly database:

This one is a list of "Open Access Journals". Including some that are relevent to our quest.
Despite this definition of "open":
"We define open access journals as journals that use a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access."
I did find some journals that charged for access.

And if you really want to get it from the horse's mouth
The Complete Works of Charles Darwin online.
You know, Darwin, the worm guy.

I haven't looked any any of these, and I imagine a lot of them will be green revolution stuff, but since they go way back there will be some gems.

Another one. This time on bio-fuels.
Whatever are we going to do for reading material when we no longer have the Internet?
16-06-2007, 05:21 PM
I've been wondering about that - specifically about getting important information printed out with waterproof inks (my printer's inks are easily smudged if wet).

We might not have time to read.

A library, not of books, but of a useful magazine. All of the Energy Self Sufficiency Newsletter issues (no longer in distribution)
Terrific Mike - thankyou very much...I'm sure that will be handy for lots of people over time.

It has been a while since I have found a good collection of free books that might interest forum members. But here is another one:

I have just revisited this library. It has grown quite some.
The new gems are in the links to other "Online Collections"
