Hello /edu/! /read/ ( >>5912
) here to announce a new project to you. It's https://archive.marxists.xyz
. It's a new public archive of Marxist texts and books, where anyone can edit and format texts.
We're running what is essentially the Marxist counterpart to The Anarchist Library, same software and all. There are a few advantages this software provides us over a traditional site like marxists.org:>uses a database for storing data, easier to maintain over time>texts are formatted in a simple markup language, adding new texts is incredibly easy>site automatically generates various formats of ebooks for use on different devices or even printing>advanced search and browsing function
and best of all, it's public, so anyone can contribute! Whether adding new translations or just fixing a typo on an already published piece, anyone can help!
The goal of the archive is to be a public place anyone can use to publish Marxist literature in a general sense, whether republished content from other sources, or new translations and original writings. We try to be non-sectarian, as our community itself is diverse. We'll let most classic works be published right away, but original pieces will require a closer look by moderation.
We've already published a few different pieces so you can see for yourself how it all works. For example this one: archive.marxists.xyz/library/friedrich-engels-principles-of-communism
We'd love to have contributions from you! We also invite the translation team at >>2085
to publish their work on our site.
That is all for now, thank you.
