OS/2 Books and OpenLibrary
« on: April 08, 2016, 05:15:46 pm »
Hi

Without trying to set a high expectative I think it will be nice to help a little bit on the OpenLibrary.org with the OS/2 books.

Some of the things that I found nice about it:
1) It is a part of the Internet Archive, which is a Public Library.
2) All changes there are Public Domain.
3) Internet Archive is not a corporation, it is a non-profit organization that is not goverment funded.

Check the books on the library I think it can be usefull to:
1) Help fix any missing information on the books (ISBN #, Tittle, Author name, etc) comparing it to the original book or other sources.
2) Help adding book covers
3) Adding tags so it can be easily related to OS/2. I found that some OS/2 books has this tags;
"OS/2 (Computer file), Operating systems (Computers)"
4) Donate OS/2 books to the "Internet Archive Book Drive". We don't know for sure when those are going to be scanned, but it is good they can have one copy to preserve it.

So, creating an account there is easy, editting the books information it is also very easy once you are logged. I think it can be fun to help there and also help preserve OS/2 knowledge.

What do you think? Remember that if does not applies to you or you don't want to help you don't need to reply.

Regards
