    This is frustrating, because the public domain books in the Haiti Trust can only be downloaded if you have a library card from certain University Libraries. I have a list of a half a dozen Gregg Shorthand Manuals mostly from late 1800's through early 1900's that I want to download from the Haiti Trust page, but I don't belong to any of those Fancy Dan Universities. If anyone belongs to any of these libraries, please message me privately to help me download a few files.

    The list of Libraries is on the drop-down box on the left side of this web page:

  2. If you download stuff through the Hathi Trust, the pdf will be watermarked with your name, date of download, affiliation, in addition to a warning that says that "the images and OCR not be re-hosted, redistributed or used commercially." In other words, you can download it for yourself, but you cannot post it on any other websites.

    Also, could you edit your post, and use bitly.com to shorten the long URL, or use the html code for links? The long URL messed up the spacing of the blog, as the URL text is not wrapping around the message box. This post explains how to create html links in reply messages.

  3. I was able to read the books online (at least a few pages — there may be a limit I didn't reach).

    It looks like a guest account will let you download some of the books. I agree, it's nice to have a copy when there's no internet.

    (If anyone writes a program that shows text or plate on one side of the screen, and room to write on the other, I'll consider buying whatever tablet they used. If they add dictation, I'll do more than consider.
