In 1996 Gutenberg etext archive's creator, Michael Hart, issued this plea to the Internet community for support when both the University of Illinois and Benedictine University ceased supporting the project. Project Gutenberg, begun in 1971, is an electronic collection of literary works from Cicero's Orations to the complete works of Shakespeare to Zitkala-Sa's Old Indian Legends to selections from Edith Warton. All told, Gutenberg has just released the 700th series and all texts are freely accessible from servers in five different countries or available for purchase in CD-ROM format. Each text is contributed by a corps of volunteers including individuals who enter, proofread and are responsible for the final editing. Texts are available via author or title in uncompressed and compressed format for your reading and bandwidth pleasure.
