Wikisource is a growing collection of primary-source English texts in any language, as well as translations of source texts. All texts appearing in this, the English Wikisource, must be in the English language. If they are in another language, they can be added to one of our other Wikisource projects. Most of the texts on Wikisource are in the public domain and not protected by any copyright or license. However, some are copyrighted and available under license compatible with Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike. All images, PDFs and other files should be uploaded to Wiki commons.
