    Online for who? I type “algebra” in the search, and hundreds of titles come up. But nothing actually readable online after about 1915. There’s been a few minor changes in the subject since then.

    I love IA for genealogy research. Most of the family/county history books I’m interested in are long out of print and have such specific subject matter than they’re impossible to find at the library. (It doesn’t help that my local library doesn’t offer inter-library loan services.) But, almost without fail, the Internet Archive will have the book I’m looking for.

  6. I can’t think of anything more wonderful than the legacy of Stem Hart.  There should be kittens and unicorns for him. Any comments/reminiscences/ideas from Cory and the BB folks? Srsly. Seems he had a big impact on you guys/gals.

    There are lots of post-1923 public domain works (and works scanned with permission of rightsholders) in the Internet Archive book collection.
