lb_lee: M.D. making a shocked, confused face (serious thought)
I woke up this morning with a sudden idea: I think I might want to make a multi library.

I basically have a shelf completely devoted to it anyway.  And I keep banging on and on about these old books nobody cares about anymore, in part because they never knew they existed.  Might as well use my old library school training for something, right?

If it was a brick and mortar place though (being run out of my apartment, really), I wonder, would anyone even CARE?  Who'd want to lug their butts to New England just for that?  Maybe I could do a mix of brick-and-mortar and ebook library, since I'm going to have to be doing both print and digital works. (A bunch of the old print books never became digital, and a bunch of the academic articles, I will only ever have digital copies of.)

I'm not sure how all this is going to go.  Maybe I'll finish waking up and this'll just end up another dead idea, like the old multi book database that never got going.  But well, there's absolutely no harm in TALKING about it.  And it would be nice to use my old training.

So for now, here's what I want: I want recommendations, and I want concrete books and files to add to this library. (Even if the only person who ever uses it is me, at least it'll give me more things to reference and source, right?) If you've got old multi books you don't want anymore, let me know!  If you've MADE a book or a comic, that's in a complete book or ebook form, let me know!  What do you guys think?
