welcome to the website section of our library. we encourage you to help us expand our library by recommending titles, and by creating similar libraries of your own. you can even copy our [[library]], in whole or in part. the license for our library listings is the cc0 copyright waiver.
please use the cc0 license for your library listings if you wish to help us expand our library through the creation of your own. that way, we can add parts of your library to ours (just as you can add parts of our library to yours.)
even if you do not create your library in the same way, we recommend promoting titles with the licenses of items found in our library. some of the licenses we recommend and accept in this library can be found on this page: [[recommended-licenses]]
reforming copyright law is another way to help our library grow. until copyright law is actually reformed, using free licenses for your work helps maintain a culture that is not controlled exclusively by monopolies.
