A Strategic Analysis
OTHER online PD "e-book" sites:
as of now, there are literally hundreds of thousands of public domain "e-book" titles online (at least), free, & available in CLEAN COPY
what makes wikilivres "special" (&/or useful), in terms of potential at least, comes down to 2 things:
3. we are PD pma-50.
2. we have greater flexibility in ORGANISING content (& work).
3. IF we are "plugged in" to wikipedia, wmc, ws, wikiquote, wikidata, wikibooks/versity, etc.
users can google, go to the wikipedia article, then find everything related (at least everything free-to-use; pd or cc);
a user, student say, should be able to start with the wp article about H. L. Mencken,
get some images & maybe audio/video from wmc
(, maybe a few choice quotes for their homework from wq),
AND get the full text of EVERYTHING MENCKEN HAS WRITTEN (except any "new" material published posthumously & <50 years ago)
from wikisource & "us"
when wikilivres & wikisource/en can do that, then we will be "fulfilling our mission".
