I have recently discovered the "free to view" archives of NYT where selected articles from early years are available as PDFs. Am I correct in assuming these are all PD to read for these NF collections? If so I plan to read an article from December of 1851 from the Times about a fire in the Bowery (first year of Times publication!) and hope to do more articles for future editions.

Are pre-1922 magazines also considered PD across the board? Thanks!
Do you have a link you can share with us?

Hi Colleen, Those sources should be ok. You might also enjoy the Chronicling America: Historic American Newspaper Collection from the Library of Congress. http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/

Thanks Sue! I have poked around in the Chronicling America collection and probably will do more of it in the future but it’s a little overwhelming!

The illustrations are beautiful in the text!

The illustrations are indeed beautiful! Here is a link to the illustrator, Stephen Buchmann's web site http://stephenbuchmann.com/ The reason I read "Native Bees" was because I was out walking with my cell phone camera in hand, and our late blooming October dandelions were attracting myriads of native bees of various species, and I captured a photo of a gorgeous iridescent green sweat bee on a dandelion which is going to be the cover of vol. 53. Also saw a huge bumblebee sharing a dandelion with a tiny sweat bee, an act of neighborliness I hadn't imagined.

It's my personal take (but obviously just that, a personal take on the matter) that, USDA publications are ok, unless they specifically say something (like a photo)isn't. Here is the USDA's policy stated:

"Most information presented on the USDA Web site is considered public domain information. Public domain information may be freely distributed or copied, but use of appropriate byline/photo/image credits is requested. Attribution may be cited as follows: "U.S. Department of Agriculture." [LibriVox catalog will reference USDA as source].

Hi Sue,

Please discard and disregard the file I just uploaded to knotyouraveragejo titled EP33.

I just realized it does not qualify as public domain. Please forgive me for the nuisance..

Thank you.

Hi BT, Thanks for this review of Mencken's The American Language. :)

I've provided link to the same article from The New Republic from Hathi Trust for use in our LibriVox catalog: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=hvd.hxqfni;view=1up;seq=169. Let's just say I am a bit "squiggly" about using unz.org as a source for a couple of reasons, the fact that the web site is controlled by one man (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Unz), and the disclaimer Unz runs on the bottom of the pages of his website: (Licensed to UNZ.org. Electronic Reproduction Prohibited)). The article itself, is, of course PD.

The Living Speech is PLOK :thumbs:

Except the title in the window might be wrong.

Thanks

Titles for selections in the Nonfiction Collection can be treated a little differently from book titles. Since the Nonfiction Collection is dealing with selections, not complete books, the titles can be flexible. My opinion, as book coordinator, is that Nonfiction Collection titles are most useful when they indicate what the recording is about and should therefore, if possible, contain searchable terms. That is why I prefer "A Critique of Mencken's The American Language" to the original title of "The Living Language." [which makes no mention of the author or the name of the book being reviewed].

Regards,
