Description
In the past, books and scripts were written and read exclusively by scholars and were inaccessible to the general public. With the widespread adoption of new technologies, such as the printing press, and public libraries, the general public has been able to access, discuss, and help each other understand publications. With the advent of closed scholarly collections, a situation where a crucial segment of human knowledge is inaccessible to the general public emerges again. PeerLibrary uses digital technologies to allow access to knowledge in academic publications by facilitating a digital space for a global community of people to collaborate to understand academic resources. The technology PeerLibrary is developing can easily be transferred to other content, books, fiction, because it digitizes interactions otherwise found in any reading experience. PeerLibrary hopes to aid the development of free collaboration under the guiding principal of the universal right to education.
