Anarchist Library
Connexions Directory of Groups & Websites 2016


Purpose: is (despite its name) an archive focusing on anarchism, anarchist texts, and texts of interest for anarchists.
Within the scope of our use of the term 'anarchism' we have been quite broad, but broad does not mean infinite, and basically shrinks down to a set of ideas against the State and the capital.

What is so special about this site?
Often, you may find the texts hosted here on other sites that also aim to be digital libraries, and often the texts are taken from them (the source is always listed). But this library provides (together with the on-line version of each text) one or more high quality PDFs in various sizes and and formats, as well as its plain text sources, and an EPUB version for mobile platforms. We actively encourage the DIY printing and the distribution of the texts, so you have the 'imposed' version for Letter paper (USA) and A4 (rest of the world): just print double side, fold and clip, and the booklet is ready.
The site provides a way for distributors and friends to change the layout of the PDFs and to create collections of an arbitrary number of texts (1 or more).
The site also provides an advanced search engine.

Other: The old files have been archived in a torrent release, which you can grab here: anarchist-libraries-2014-10-04.torrent.
