Electronic Texts

Being on the staff of the University of Sydney, I have access to a marvellous collection of books. Many of these are quite old and in the public domain. I used to photocopy chunks of them for my files, but since I have a scanner, I decided to try and save a few trees by OCRing* them instead. Having scanned them, the best way to access the electronic format is to set them up as web pages. Since I have them in web format, I might as well share them on my page! I'm working on another French memoir, plus Neale's and Malcolm's memoirs.

* OCR = Optical Character Recognition (for the computer uncertain).
