Public.Resource.Org is dedicated to publishing and sharing public domain materials that legally and morally should be free, but are locked behind paywalls, because their distribution has been outsourced to commercial providers. After identifying such collections, which often directly contribute to the safety and well-being of people who could not afford to purchase them from a commercial provider, Public.Resource.Org acquires the materials and publishes them online. At the same time, they call on the holder of the information to collaborate to make the information freely available.
