News as of November 8, 2005
The Interhack Digital Library Project was an effort to
understand how to present significant amounts of text online,
at a time when most people were connected to the network with
modems and there was very little understanding about how
electronic texts could be made useful. The core issues are
pretty well understood now, and people with specific expertise
in user interface design are dealing with them.
I have received a fair bit of email from people over the
years, so clearly some others have found these texts useful.
I'll soon move all of these texts, complete with a brand new
presentation, to a new home on my
personal Web site shortly.
This will allow for more sophisticated search capability,
better presentation of much of the material, and so on. I'll
set redirection properly so that bookmarks, Web robots, and
other things will find them at their new home.
welcome to the interhack digital library. the digital library
project is a straightforward one: find interesting and/or useful
etexts in the public domain, whose copyrights have expired, or
whose usage rights can be secured and put them on the web.
we're interested in helping with the availability of the
materials we have here, which are probably available in
perhaps more importantly, though, we're hoping to spend some
energy exploring interfaces to the data. specifically, we're
looking at a client/server interface whereby all of the
searching and user-interfacing takes place on the client, and
the server will act as more of a data repository, and perhaps
help the client handle more exhaustive queries.
as we come across and convert more texts, we'll park them here.
if you have comments or questions, we're interested in hearing
please be advised that this section is quite experimental. we
might move things around, change interfaces, etc., without
warning. if you're interested in bookmarking any of our
resources please bookmark this page, until the resources here
become more stabilized.
