Open Library is a project of the non-profit Internet Archive. Open Library claims to have 6 million authors and 20 million book records (not works), and about one million Public Domain books are available as digitized books.

Which partnership could be possible[edit]

From WS towards IA:

  • Wikisource could upload back into the Internet Archive the proofread works. Hurdle: WS has no means (yet) of embedding proofread text back into the Djvu files.
  • Books in Commons that are missing in the Internet Archive could be uploaded.

From OL/IA towards IA:

  • An indication when there is a proofread work in Wikisource.
  • An invitation to proofread texts in WS when that book is present.

Status[edit]

OL is still gathering a working community, not that many resources are available, but there is openness for a collaboration.
