  • Project Gutenberg has been around for awhile now. The recent web interface to 40,000 downloadable free ebooks looks much like an ILS. You see the search and browse links as well as categories.
  • I typed in “The Prince and the Pauper” and chose a titleNotice the versions for the various devicesAnd notice the four tabs.
  • This is acutally an interface to 500 classics on the Gutenberg site organized by the Colorado library consortium. This is a valuable tool if you wish to download these into your own collection including the availability of MARC records.I will interject that the same titles are always free on Overdrive as well, but if you don’t have overdrive…
  • Unlike Project Gutenberg, here you do need to login and you can actually check out books. I believe all 50 states have joined this project and the site boasts a million free ebooks. There are some catches, and not every title is treated equally for obvious reasons.Again note the interface that looks like an ILS.
