Open Library is an online project intended to create "one web page for every book ever published". Created by Aaron Swartz,[3][4] Brewster Kahle,[5] Alexis Rossi,[6] Anand Chitipothu,[6] and Rebecca Malamud,[6] Open Library is a project of the Internet Archive, a nonprofit organization. It has been funded in part by grants from the California State Library and the Kahle/Austin Foundation. Open Library provides online digital copies in multiple formats, created from images of many public domain, out-of-print, and in-print books.
