A breadcrumb trail of project notes
The Internet Archive is now providing more than 1,000,000 digital books for free to the print-disabled:
More than doubling the number of books available to print disabled people of all ages, today the Internet Archive launched a new service that brings free access to more than 1 million books – from classic 19th Century fiction and current novels to technical guides and research materials – now available in the specially designed format to support those who are blind, dyslexic or otherwise visually impaired.
There are some more details over on the Open Library blog post about 1 million digital books for the print-disabled. I got a shout-out on that page (thanks, George!) and it’s a privilege to be a very small part of the team making it happen.
To add to a blockbuster day, the newly redesigned Open Library launched today as well. The new design is really fantastic and fun to use.
For example, here’s a subject page about Gliding and Soaring:
Congratulations to the Internet Archive team and collaborators for these bigs steps towards universal access to all knowledge!
