We’ve been busy working behind the scenes for the last few months. We want to bring the cream of the library to the surface in a natural manner, this equates to hands on work by a human rather than a computer, spending time reviewing and grading the library documents. The first pass is to remove documents that slipped through our filtering system, so we have removed 472 documents. The total documents in the library now stands at 135,555.
This months popular documents include:
- Our Planet Its Past and Future by William Denton in 1873
- Scientific American Journal
- View Music & Moods virtual video illustrations from John Keats, Samuel Daniels, Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare
- The Diplomacy of Revolution by William Henry Trescot
