Programs

Unglue.it catalogs, distributes and helps to fund free-licensed and public domain ebooks. With over 18,000 free-licensed ebooks and over 60,000 titles produced from Project Gutenberg, Unglue.it provides access across a wide variety of content. Unglue.it provides syndication feeds in ONIX, OPDS, and MARC for use in libraries around the world. Almost three million free ebooks have been dowloded via Unglue.it! https://unglue.it

Free Programming Books is a collaboratively maintained list of courses, podcasts/screencasts and other free resources about programming and related topics. To date, over 1,200 different contributors have compiled over 3,000 links to free programming resources. Its github repo is a top-ten "starred" project on Github. https://ebookfoundation.github.io/free-programming-books/

GITenberg is an exploration of how Project Gutenberg might work if all the Gutenberg texts were on Github, so that tools like version control, continuous integration, and pull-request workflow could be employed. For almost fifty years, Project Gutenberg has led the way in making public domain text live on the internet as ebooks. Over the past two years, we have worked with Project Gutenberg to bring innovations from GITenberg to Project Gutenberg. The most visible improvements we've helped to implement are the generated covers for books without original cover images. https://www.GITenberg.org

The Free ebook Foundation also takes advantage of its small size and flexibility to undertake exploratory projects. Our recent work has centered on free ebook usage and off-line ebook usage.
