Grants:Project/Rapid/Buy two books
I want to buy two Chinese scanned public domain books from the website "bookinlife". They both contain a list of books published before the mid-1930s. They are particular useful because many books it listed are in public domain and can be put into Chinese Wikisource.
There currently no scanned books on Wikimedia Commons that can be used to digitalize and serve as a list of books published before the mid-1930s. As a result of this grant, scanned books will be available on Wikimedia Commons and enable editors from Chinese Wikisource to digitalize them, which will ultimately serve as a list of books for editors to looking for and digitalize, sparkling more exciting books published before the mid-1930s to be digitalized on Chinses Wikisource.
