Internet Archive's American Libraries Project

The American Libraries project from the Open-Access Text Archive of the Internet Archive has been making public domain books from libraries around the country available online. Scanned texts can be viewed in facsimile form ("flip books" and/or PDF files) and in plain text form from the American Libraries Web site.

This Goodly Land: Alabama's Literary Landscape has just added American Library and Google Book Search links to works by some of our 19th Century and early 20th Century authors: Mary Raymond Shipman Andrews, Zitella Cocke, Mary McNeil Fenollosa, Philip Henry Gosse, Milford W. Howard, Booker T. Washington, Howard Weeden, Augusta Jane Evans Wilson, Clement Wood, and Martha Young. We're happy that projects like American Libraries are making these and similar works available to readers, students, and scholars everywhere.
