Both of these recent articles, from the New York Times and The Harvard Crimson, endorse an online Digital Public Library of America (in response to the recent ruling against Google Books), and which isn't a monopoly -
"Google's Book Deal"
"Online Treasure Trove:
Harvard should consider the best options for making information accessible"
Let's dovetail World University & School -
http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects, like Wikipedia with MIT Open Course Ware - with this DPLoA project ... :)
Both Harvard Professors Robert Darnton and John Palfrey are spearheading this free, online Library process.
I hope they (we) will succeed and that World University and School's Library Resources' page can collaborate: http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Library_Resources.
Getting the NY Times, the Crimson and these high profile Harvard professors behind one key aspect of World University and School's main web pages (which are free Courses, Subjects, Languages, Library Resources, Nation States, You at WUaS, Educational Software, Museums, Research and Hardware Resource Possibilities, will be invaluable, and help the WUaS process along significantly).
I hope we can use this World University and School Google Group more effectively: http://groups.google.com/group/World-University-and-School. Please invite friends to join.
World University and School is like Wikipedia with MIT Open Course Ware, and is moving to begin the accreditation.
