What are the best web sites for international networks of public libraries, worldwide? Let's add them to

found and added The Internet Public Library to see Library Resources - rich resource. WUaS is growing & has a lot! of resources ...


Let's invite public libraries around the world to list as access to great universities' FREE Open Courses, Library Resources, Educational Freeware, and invite these publics to collaborate on the development of World University & School.

Let's get public libraries to list World University & School as first choice for access great universities' courses, library resources et al


Innovation in , like Wikipdedia, will occur through group collaboration - sharing ideas openly - eg WAVE

***** LIBRARY RESOURCES has open source textbook section with around 10 textbooks - Looking for world class textbooks ... in all languages and for all nation states - please add links
