As a web developer, I often need to use the Internet to look for information about the technologies I work with. Most of the time, an entry in a specialized blog or a simple comment in a forum is enough to point me in the right direction.
Nevertheless, on other occasions there's nothing better for learning than a good book or manual. The Internet is full of bibliographic material, but it's not always easy to find them together in the same place. Often we find ourselves doing several searches to put us on on the track of some interesting document or one that is adapted to our specific needs. And this is especially difficult or frustrating when along with the information, we want it to also be free [as in free speech].
The business strategies of editors and the large quantity of pages that offer illegitimate direct downloads of books, make it very complicated to find the resources of interest when we use a search engine. The majority of the materials that we find, will be references to stores, some review in a forum, perhaps a peek at the first few pages of an interesting title, or a direct link to DRM protected content.
Because of all this, knowing the effort that many authors make, of the large quantity of material produced under open licences, and their general high quality, OpenLibra was born. The idea behind this project is to try and bring together in one place, most of the quality bibliographic resources, with a special interest in those written in the Spanish language. In this way, all that you need to do to consult a book, or easily download it to print or read on your favorite device, is come to this service and perform your searches in an easy and categorized way.
If you find something in the collection that you like, don't hesitate to get it.
All of the books that make up this library are free, and because of this, they are yours... all of them.
