It is a huge task collecting, scanning, using OCR, formatting, and then converting the books to the Ebook format. It would not be possible without the voluntary efforts of those sharing our belief in the importance of making these books available.
Here is how we are putting together the collection:
All the books must be in English.
Pre 1800- The book should have had some impact on sexuality or offered important insight into the era.
Post 1800- Pretty much anything on sexuality, from fiction to non-fiction.
Any book prior to 1923 is in the public domain. Books published between 1923 and 1963 may be in the public domain if the copyright owner failed to renew the copyright.
The procedure is fairly simple. Books are scanned and converted into plain text. The text is then formatted into the ePub format, readable using most eReaders.
