You’re probably aware of Project Gutenberg, an online resource which provides free access to literary works that have passed into the public domain.
But did you know that there’s a Canadian equivalent, Project Gutenberg Canada?
The mission of Project Gutenberg Canada is to make freely available Canadian-specific content that is in the public domain. In addition to fiction works by Canadian writers and ?non-fiction books on Canadian history, politics, and culture,? the online resource offers international material that is considered public domain in Canada. And it won’t be limited to Canada’s official languages; you’ll find works ?in any language, as is appropriate for a country with Canada’s multicultural makeup.?
In the future, Project Gutenberg plans to ?launch a series of original translations? to add accessibility to its collections.
