Did You Know? – Project Gutenberg Canada

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.
