Claremont School of Theology Donates 250,000 Books to the Open Library

“This gesture of radical solidarity of one library with its fellow library (the Internet Archive) couldn’t come at a better time, given last week’s lawsuit by four major publishers to end the Open Library and challenge its legal basis in Controlled Digital Lending. If these publishers get their way, it will not merely affect their own book offerings and authors. It will do irreparable damage to the accessibility of legally purchased, library-owned and library-borrowed materials. Scholarship and the advancement of science will be harmed far beyond the scope of the publishers’ commercial interests.”
