Wikisource is a Wikimedia project to build a library of free texts. Initially called "Project Sourceberg" when it began in 2003 (a play on the already existing non-Wikimedia project with similar goals, Project Gutenberg), it branched into subdivisions for individual languages by 2005. Now Wikisource libraries house books, novels, essays, historical documents, poems, letters, speeches and other documents, so long as they can be made available under the CC-BY-SA open content license.

[edit]

Original Wikisource logo
  • See the multilingual chart "Wikisource – The Free Library", for the name of the project and its slogan in many dozens of languages.
  • The Wikisource Logo changed during the history of the project. It was originally a .jpg image (as seen to the right), but is now an .svg image of the iceberg (as seen above).
