2 Easy Ways to Interact with the Library.

Full Member

Vetted via Linkedin, or other.  Can Access all information.  Participate in Discussions, and add content to the library.  Votes counted. Can participate in Community governance.

Causal Browser

Anyone with a browser can access some of the content.  They can vote, but their vote will not count because they are not vetted.

Using the Library

Our Digital Library uses advanced algorithms to get you the ACTIONABLE INFORMATION you need, when you need it, and formatted for the device you’re using when you need the information.

A-Keys

Everyone that puts content into the Library uses A-Keys and Tokens.  This helps vett the content and protects the privacy of the Library user.

Educational Blockchains

Every entry into the library is in the form of a “Learning Packet.”  When the Content is created it is assigned a blockchain.  Blockchains can be added to, but not changed.  The Blockchain contains all the “Meta-data” about the Content.

Personalized Search

One of the benefits of Joining is the ability to build a “Personal Profile” that the search engine can use to build more optimal searches.  And because we use A-Keys, your privacy is fully protected.

We are not the Only Digital Library in the Cloud.

Because of smart people like Faraday and Maxwell, Shannon and Licklighter we now have digital liberaries all over the world.   

We now have easy access to hundreds of thousands of online libraries, and some of them are simply wonderful. The majority are invaluable sources of reference, but there are some, such as those listed below, that contain books, maps, films and audio-books that would be difficult to find in physical form.This data is another source of “Raw Data.”  Yes, we have our unique Library that will complement all our other digital repositories.  But, that, in no way means, the our library is the only library we can use.

Here are some others.  (I would suspect this list will grow over time.  But it is a relatively small list.0

1. World Digital Library. A source for manuscripts, rare books, films, maps and more in multilingual format.

2. Universal Digital Library. A collection of one million books.

3. Project Gutenberg. More than 33,000 e-books to read and download.

4. Bartleby. An immense collection of books for consultation, including fiction, essay and poetry.

5. ibiblio. E-books, magazines, academic essays, software, music and radio.

6. Google Books. More than 100,000 books for consultation, download or on-line purchase.

7. Internet Archive: The largest digital library for downloading e-books and audio-books for free.

8. Open Library: More than one million e-books of classic literature to download.
