I'm pleased to let you know that my latest book, The Early Development of Project Gutenberg, c.1970-2000, has been published as part of the Cambridge Elements in Publishing and Book Culture series: https://www.cambridge.org/core/elements/early-development-of-project-gutenberg-c19702000/E5491FB496C9AD6C65DB163AFC642A0F Cambridge University Press will provide free access to the Element through that link until June 29th.
In the book I re-examine the established narrative of Project Gutenberg's development beyond the often-hagiographic focus on Michael Hart's role as the founder, instead focusing on how the Project was a team effort that required legal and technical expertise to grow. While I mainly focus on the history of digital publishing and digitization, I tie this together with research from the history of computing and the emergence of the Internet which should be of interest to SIGCIS members.
