I don't know if anyone is aware of the wonderful resources that can be downloaded for free at the Internet Archive http://www.archive.org

The Archive is scanning the library of Princeton Theological Seminary and many great commentaries and reference works are available for download and dozens of titles are appearing every day. I place them in a folder and then connect them to BibleWorks in my ERMIE. This goes a long way of rectifying the lack of commentaries.

I would like to know HOW you find the "library of Princeton Theological Seminary and many great commentaries and reference works are available for download".

Is there a way to search for these titles??

How did you put them in a folder, and connect them???

Yes, I too would be happy if you would post a step-by-step instruction on this.
Thanks

1. Go to: http://www.archive.org/details/Princeton

2. Search for authors or titles

3. Download the PDF for the titles selected to a folder

4. To open Ermie and add a resource stored on your computer to it, go to Resources on the main menu in BibleWorks and then click Ermie (External Resources Manager). The organizational tree on the left side of the catalog contains a number of topical folders. Choose the appropriate folder topic for the resource that you wish to add to Ermie and then click the Add button in the lower left corner of Ermie. In the Add item window type a descriptive Name of new item to create: and enter the complete Path for a document on your computer or the URL address for a website in the field marked Path/URL:. Click the Create Item button and then Done.

When the resource has been added to the viewer catalog simply double click on the item and it will be displayed in the lower portion of Ermie. To view a larger portion of the resource in Ermie, click on Hide catalog. For more information on using Ermie to view resources outside BibleWorks see the help file.

Hi all

Can I suggest: what about turning this thread into a ERMIE-master list?

A list of good books to share with other users.

You can also share Ermie files. Under the "More . . ." button you can save the file. Then you can upload it to this site, email it to friends, post it on a website, etc.

There is also an Import option under the "More . . ." button. A word of warning, though--if I remember correctly, importing will add duplicate entries if you already have the same entry in your current Ermie catalog.

You don't have to import a shared Ermie catalog, though. You can keep it as a separate catalog and open it whenever you want. You can have as many Ermie catalogs as you wish, and open them whenever you want.

Another small caveat. If people are downloading the PDFs from archive.org and saving them on their computer, the ERMIE catalog will be a little less valuable, because it will be pointing to a folder on their specific computer which won't exist on the computer that it's shared with. However, if your ERMIE links are pointing to websites, they would be readily available to anyone.

Sounds great, all of it.

Now, who will be the first to list titles and share PDFs?

I don't have any of this in ERMIE, but you can certainly start with this website (http://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=d9xh4s8_21x7n3f&hl=en).

Thanks for the tip Michael!

That's why we keep you on the payroll here. :D

When I create an item in Ermie from archive.org i.e. via web address, I can open it in Ermie, but I can't search the book. Do I have to download the book to be able to work with it?

I am very impressed, this even has Emmanuel Tov's book.

The pdf files at archive.org are photographic pdfs, rather than text pdfs. That is, the files are graphic images of the pages; they cannot be searched like a text file can.

This makes them less useful then they could be, but the amount of time necessary to convert them to text would be prohibitive for their organization (the work is done by volunteers).

If you can get a copy of Adobe Acrobat (not Reader), you can add your own bookmarks to their volumes, which would at least make accessing chapters and passages a little easier.

Actually many of the PDF's are text PDFs. All the ones from Google are photographic PDFs
