Libcom library archiving to do list

Libcom library archiving to do list

An updated list of documents and websites we would like to archive in our library.

Here are a list of links to websites and articles which we would like duplicated in our library.

This is to help ensure that as many people as possible read them, and also to ensure that the documents stay online, in case other websites disappear - as has happened to so many other radical sites in the past couple of years.

We would appreciate any help from our users in copying this stuff across. If people would like to help but don't have the technical know-how - not to worry, we can help you! Just ask in the comment section below.

Higher priority
we would like pretty much all of the content on the following links duplicated on libcom.org:
http://zerowork.org/ - articles from the journal are already all on libcom but we would like all of the supplemental materials
http://home.earthlink.net/~lrgoldner/ - break their haughty power
http://www.left-dis.nl/
http://www.generation-online.org/t/translations.htm
http://dl.lib.brown.edu/radicalamerica/shelf.html?PHPSESSID=b676554282b5b37b5af9b5280b2fe25d
http://www.alphabetthreat.co.uk/pasttense/page2.html

Lower priority
The following websites contain some useful texts. We would like any decent, relevant ones which we do not host already to be copied into our library, but the higher priority ones above are preferred for the time being.

www.midnightnotes.org
www.revoltagainstplenty.com
http://www.againstsleepandnightmare.com/
http://www.nestormakhno.info/english/index.htm
http://www.spunk.org/index.html
theanarchistlibrary.org
http://dwardmac.pitzer.edu/Anarchist_Archives/
http://www.bastardarchive.org/
zinelibrary.info

New content
The following websites are active and continually having new content posted. As such, duplicating content from them is not as high a priority, however we would still like to duplicate new additions or older articles from these websites as they come out eventually:
www.insurgentnotes.org
http://faridabadmajdoorsamachar.blogspot.com/
http://gurgaonworkersnews.wordpress.com/ Gurgaon workers news
http://www.katesharpleylibrary.net/

Underway
These sites are currently being copied over. However, help with them would still be appreciated. Post in the comments below for more information

Added the stuff from http://ngnm.vrahokipos.net/translations.html but they add stuff sporadically so best to keep an eye on it.

Don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but here's a large collection of Raya Dunayevskaya writings from News & Letters.

http://newsandletters.org/WritingsofRD.asp

I've finally started on the generation-online library. There's a lot of articles not in the libcom library, but I am wondering whether all of them should be uploaded (e.g. Bifo's articles, Foucault, Agamben etc.). Can one of the mods (I guess Steven) let me know if I should just upload all of it or be selective?

Steven.
Jun 24 2011 23:15

Hi, thanks very much for that.

Regarding what to upload, I would use your discretion. In general I would say stick with stuff that is explicitly libcom, or of significant interest to libcoms, like operaismo stuff or whatever.

More general philosophical articles like Foucault, I would say not to bother with unless they are of specific libcom interest and aren't online many other places.

Thanks so much!

Ok, will do. There's a lot that doesn't really need to go up in the libcom library.

Ace. Good luck!

Subversion is now finished - everything I can find online is now up.

I have a paper copy of the final issue, courtesy of spiky Mike which I hope to put up shortly.

If anyone knows of anything else online anywhere which I had missed, please do post it up or post a link here so someone else can.

http://nntk.net/main.php?g2_itemId=251 - Spectacular Times - these would be great in the library, albeit bundled as separate PDF documents rather than with individual images for each page DONE

The majority of what's on there seems to already be on the website, but yeah, worth putting the rest in, too.

the zerowork stuff is in the library now.

Also the autonomia: post political politics book is in the library in PDF form here - http://libcom.org/library/autonomia-post-political-politics

so is Negri's Books for Burning, here - http://libcom.org/library/books-burning-between-civil-war-democracy-1970s-italy-antonio-negri

All the stuff from here "http://users.resist.ca/~jon.beasley-murray/aut_02.html -autopsy texts" is in the library except for this piece -- Franco Barchiesi, Flexibility in Manufacturing -- Organization and Subjectivity
http://www.arpnet.it/chaos/flexibility.htm

I can put that one up later

can someone update the original post please?

Juan Conatz
May 27 2012 06:41

YES. One less thing on my list.

Updated the blogpost.

Also, I'm slowly going through the Radical America. I went through all the PDF's and wrote down the titles of some of the more relevent material and am using a free (and not terribly great) OCR program to convert them into text, then reformating and putting them in the library.

One thing on putting stuff in the library, Nate...I don't know how hugely important it is to the libcom folks, but I usually do some additional formatting to the articles I post such as bold headers of article section titles, italicizing foreign language words/book titles and adding the hyperlinked footnotes or whatever you call it1.

Juan, yeah, my thought was put them in now and format better later. If that's not kosher then I'll stop doing them that way. I need to re-read the style guide because I can never remeber how to do the damn footnotes.

Awesome about you doing Radical America and in such a detailed way, that's a great resource.

Two more suggestions for the archive list -

http://www.sojournertruth.net/main.html
STO's not really a libertarian communist group (though probly no less so than any of the Italian operaismo people in the 70s were) but they're of interest at least to US-based libertarian communists.

and
http://bigflameuk.wordpress.com/
BF is a big part of how the Italian stuff came into English in the first place, in addition to the political work they got up to. I also think that with both the STO site and the BF site it's useful to have materials on groups that are about the size of a lot of our groups today, to compare with.

Amazing, thanks guys!

yeah Nate Juan is right we do prefer the basic formatting at least - i.e. bold headers. Italicised foreign words/journal names I would say don't worry about, but for emphasis we would like to keep. Footnotes would be great, but [1] etc style footnotes are alright. Because even though we may intend to go back and tidy things up later we probably won't get round to it, and some of the original formatting may be lost and it may not be clear how it is supposed to be.

But again thanks so much to you two!

Nate

Sure thing Steven. I'm dumber when it's late at night, I should of known this in the first place. I'll go back over those pieces and fix them. I'm also gonna make an effort to put more stuff in the library like this. It's a great resource and building it further is cool, and that's a better use of my time than most of what I do. smile

Steven.
May 27 2012 19:31

Brilliant, thank you! I haven't got much time at the moment to be adding/formatting stuff so we really appreciate any help

Nate
May 27 2012 23:28

formatting on those posts fixed.
Can you remove this one from the original post please?
"http://users.resist.ca/~jon.beasley-murray/aut_02.html -autopsy texts"

That stuff's already in the library.

I'll start doing Break Their Haughty Power next.

May 28 2012 18:04

Amazing, thanks! I will remove that one now

In Birchall's SW obit it says Alan Woodward wrote extensively, does anyone know if his stuff is online anywhere?
