Overview Edit

Founded in 1971, Project Gutenberg (PG) is a volunteer effort to digitize and archive cultural works to "encourage the creation and distribution of e-books." Most of the items in its collection are the full texts of public domain books. The project tries to make these as free as possible, in long-lasting, open formats that can be used on almost any computer.

The first text made available was the U.S. Declaration of Independence.
