Windy Hill Project
An easy-access archive for challenging subjects.
Access to this archive is simple. Members are emailed a link to the Windy Hill Project's file in dropbox.com. Within that file are subtopic folders like science, literature, nonfiction, military history, homeschooling, ESOL, and prepping. Each folder contains 20- 200 files on its subject. Members may read them online or download them as often as they want, whenever they want to. Check out pages 1 and 2 for details.
All of the files in the archive are either "free use" materials or in-house productions like subject-specific photo files. The problem with collecting and vetting 50,000+ files is that it takes a lot of time and energy. Fortunately, the archive has done that for you! Whether you are about to begin a new subject collection or augment one you already have, this site has a lot to offer.
A Simple way to expand your library. . . . Photo of the Month: That was then, this is. . . .
To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see strange things--machines, armies, multitudes, shadows in the jungle and on the moon; to see man's work--his painting, towers and discoveries; to see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to, the women that men love and many children; to see and to take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed. Thus to see, and to be shown, is now the will and the new expectancy of half mankind. . . .
--Henry Luce, founder of Life Magazine, 1936
To search far and near--
1. Subject areas are hierarchical; broad topic areas contain topical folders. The folders, in turn, hold several files (typically as few as five or as many as 200) containing specific content--articles, books, lists of internet links, audio and video files, photos, and so on. Searching through the files is the best way to find what you are looking for.
2. Members can access the Archive to read or download files.
If downloading, please remember that the subject areas are several GB in size. The topical folders are often several hundred MB in size. The smaller files, however, are smaller--usually between 10 and 200 MB--and will therefore download more quickly.
3. Members may recommend new topics to be added to the Archive. Some of the best ideas and suggestions come from members, whether they be an entire topic area or a single article or book. If the subject matter is appropriate to the Archive's mission, it will probably be accepted for inclusion.
