Open Research Library

Below is a link to the Open Research Library produced by Knowledge Unlatched with an excerpt from their announcement

"The Open Research Library ( is a hosting platform initiated and maintained by Knowledge Unlatched and BiblioLabs. It makes freely accessible scientific book publications, as well as other high-quality academic Open Access content, available to anyone for free use anywhere in the world."

The number of publications in the various categories is variable.  I found only four books under "cooking," (three of them were on wine) but a more substantial collection under "biography".

Thanks so much for this Margaret - a very valuable resource for independent scholars
