9 – Project Gutenberg of Australia

Project Gutenberg of Australia produces books in electronic form and makes them freely available to the public in accordance with Australian copyright law. NB: Under Australian copyright law, literary, dramatic, & musical work published, performed, communicated, or recorded and offered for sale in an author’s lifetime are protected for the life of the author plus fifty years from the end of the year of the author’s death. After this time they enter into the public domain. Some e-books available here may still be under copyright in the United States (where local laws have several times extended copyright to levels not accepted within Australian jurisdiction). Such works are therefore not available from the US site of Project Gutenberg.

Project Gutenberg is the original free digital library of books no longer in copyright. So you’ll find a great many classic literary texts here. The full Gutenberg collection now exceeds 5,000 books. The whole collection represents a monumental effort in unpaid, unselfish, labour since 1971.
