Prelinger Library

Took a trip to the Prelinger Library yesterday and may be in love. Rick and Megan Prelinger have created their own library, all open source, appropriation friendly and image rich. Only open 1 day a week, their project specializes in out-of -print books, ephemera, books destined for the land fill, and in many cases leftist and secret. It is an amazing project. Over 3,000 of their books have fully digitized and can be found at the Internet Archive, along with open source music, sounds, films etc. The library itself does not use the Dewey Decimal System, instead uses what Megan calls a typography or walk through the landscape technique. Starting with the earth and natural resources, one travels through the built environment, into media and into outer space.........
