Donate to the Fair Use Repository
The Fair Use Repository at fair-use.org is an effort to make important historical documents freely accessible, easily readable, and easy for researchers to cite online. We prepare freely-accessible electronic copies of (1) documents in the public domain, and (2) the portions of documents cited in fair use by participating researchers. We are working to make citation easy for human researchers and readers to use, and to encourage, by example, best practices in using semantic HTML and other open web technologies to mark up the passages of printed documents that we transcribe. Some of our past accomplishments and ongoing projects include:
Online editions of books, including the first complete online editions of: G. E. Moore’s Principia Ethica and Ethics, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon’s General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century, Benjamin Tucker’s Instead of a Book, by a Man Too Busy to Write One and Randolph Bourne’s The State
Hosting free online editions of over 2,000 historical documents from letters, pamphlets, periodicals, and anthologies, on philosophy, history, politics and radical social movements.
Building open-source research tools including the Notes from the Margins Wiki, a new cross-linked, hypertext edition of Wendy McElroy’s “Comprehensive Index to LIBERTY” and a new Radical, Libertarian, Individualist and Anarchist Periodicals Index.
We put texts online in the hopes that they will be enjoyable, and useful to
readers and researchers. If you benefit from the work that has gone into the
Fair Use Repository, one way you can support the project is with a one-time or
an automatic monthly donation. fair-use.org has a small annual budget
of costs for the technical services, labor, and research costs that are necessary to keep
fair-use.org online and operating. Donations allow this site to remain reader-supported.
If you would like to support this project, you can make a small contribution through Flattr, or you can make a secure online donation using Bitcoin or PayPal. All donations are handled by the Molinari Institute, our not-for-profit sponsor who handles the money for the Fair Use Repository:
