The woman who runs it seems very conscious of these issues and would probably be receptive to helping to get the word out.

One wonders what the costs are for single printings of books and what kind of overhead it would take to get a bindary outfitted to provide public domain works to patrons as needed… At what point is that cost effective and an improvement over the way things are done now?

Like slashdot for the geeks. If so, maybe somebody could get a post up there.

Do lawmakers give digital petitions the same weight as paper petitions?
