This iteration of 250 textbooks a use-case scenario to demonstrate its potential and invite comments and feedback.
We’re working on the best way to incorporate links particularly wrt making the site epub friendly and including original references in a useful unobtrusive and acceptable way that encourages and directs the user towards the original source without stealing content or bandwidth
the starting point for the latest incarnation of this project was my own personal collection of scanned downloaded and clipped articles books and sites – plus other stuff naively included simply as “placeholder material” – I’m working my way through the site removing any material that clearly belongs to others or making the better pages “private” until permissions are obtained or the material is made more generic
please accept our apologies and contact us if anything slips through the net – we can see which pages are viewed each day and are concentrating our clean up operation on these

the site’s current revision/incarnation as mainly a collection of links is/was informed by copyright/plagiarism/bandwidth-theft considerations but the evolving value proposition seems in our humble opinion to offer something of great value.
Nevermind we hope 250 Textbooks to be more than a collection of links and other peoples videos as is (hopefully) already apparent on many of the 2750 pages
