40 Years of Project Gutenberg: A Mini Guide

Yesterday marked the 40th Anniversary of Project Gutenberg, the collaborative digitization effort. In honor of this milestone, Mike Cook, the editor of the PG Newsletter, posted a 15 page mini-guide written by Marie Lebert on the history of Project Gutenberg. The guide is only 15 pages long, and it only touches on the most important details.

Mike also plans to post a more detailed history of the project, so it might be worth it to check back on the PG blog over the next few days.

The 40th anniversary of PG also coincides with the start of World eBook Fair 20112.
