I personally have a network to get some library scans for free and the
University Library Düsseldorf is offering since years the possibility
for registered users to suggest pre-1900 books for their digital

interesting in the pre-1900 Public Domain in the Düsseldorf OPAC:


I have published this fine option to enrich the digital Public Domain
several times in my blog http://archiv.twoday.net and have also
reported on the also FREE Grenoble service:


Only for Danish books FREE is the Kopenhagen service I mentioned at


Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. supports the German Wikisource community
with funding to let books digitize by libraries.
