Bibliowiki (formerly Wikilivres) is a complementary site to Wikisource and Commons, hosting primarily texts and images that are in the public domain in Canada (but not elsewhere). Since the Wikimedia Foundation is based in the United States, and there is a shorter term for copyright north of the border, this allows for some texts to be posted decades before they can be hosted at Wikisource. Additionally, while the site is largely in English, there are many texts in several languages, as the public domain effects all languages. Translations are also encouraged.
