Why librarians rock

According to Sam Vaknin's FreePint article "Free Public Domain and Copyrighted e-Books Online," John Ockerbloom's Online Books Page (OBP), has the largest collection of free online books on the Web. At Archivalia, Klaus Graf takes issue with this claim by pointing out that the Digital Book Index (DBI) has 3x as many free books as OBP. Graf then provides a number of links to large collections that have free online books that neither the OBP or the DBI have.

12 Aug 2005 Update: changed the mispelled Graff to Graf.

I'm sorry for mispelling your name, and I've fixed it in the post. Archivalia is a great resource. Thank you.
