compiled ac. content Bernd 04/09/2021 (Fri) 13:50:50 [Preview] No. 43246
I'm looking for somewhere on the Dark Web where people have collated a massive database of eBooks (and poss. also audiobooks, lectures, etc.) w/o adherence to any [archaic] rules of copyright. I started with piratebay (TPB) for books, where a few individuals have made their own library compilations, but noticed there are MANY books (esp. mathematical/philosophical/scientific) on the Z-library (https://b-ok.cc/) that I cannot find on TPB. Unfortunately, one can only DL a single book (and a restriction of only 10 books in one 24hr period) from Z-library. So, wishing to DL entire search results at a time, I was wondering if there's a more efficient way - a place where "I click (but do not drag) zee button that says
DOWNLOAD"...
and pref. ALL books from an entire category (or at least a search result) in one go? I'd be most grateful. Thank you.

PS I'm a complete n00b to the Dark Web (this is my first time even visiting a forum on it), so
1. if anyone can direct me (more specifically than dark.fail) to a site with massive compilations of academic content, then I can be out of everyone's hair, as...
2. it seems this is not quite the right forum* for such a request; if so, my apologies.

* On that note, what is the idea of this site? Most posts are just of pics of rather attractive women. Steganographic images, perhaps? Or just media interest? Bit more varied on this thread.

PPS Feel free to email me ([email protected]) as I don't know if I'll see anyone's response. Thanks.

PPPS Apparently needed a pic to post, so... some idea of sort of books I'd like to DL - Q Computing! lol

Something like libgen is good enough for most people, but that only seems to have fiction books (e.g. no results at all for "Quantum") - no academic books. Also, seems to be for downloading one book at a time.

Looking for a database of community-uploaded books (as opposed to an individual's) with just about anything imaginable for downloading, and multiple books (or ALL books) downloadable in a few clicks.

I've spent many years sorting files and have a rather impressive collection to pass on to others. But have focused on particular areas. So, was thinking a community of such people could pool resources, both for expedience of sorting/finding and broadening of access.

It's hard enough to find e-libraries that have a huge variety of academic books (physical university libraries being quite the opposite), let alone a community-updated database. (Many underground books, or even just expensive books, can be hard to find in e-book form.*)

So that's the sort of group of people and/or resource I'm looking for.

* For example, looking for "Secure Multi-Party Computation" by M. M. Prabhakaran, A. Sahai. Can only find to buy (Amazon) for at least 86GBP, when a PDF would cost nothing!

Libgen is mostly about different academic books. How did you search? There are 8k results

>and multiple books (or ALL books) downloadable in a few clicks.

Do you really need large amount or randomized nonsense that mostly duplicates itself? You also can't read so much anyway, so it is easier to download few recommended books instead of everything.

But if you really want, there are torrents for some collections. Like libgen (text version) on rutracker (500gb).

Main problem is simple - if you want to have multiple collection of books of different type, you need to have community of specialists, and community of specialists wouldn't work on copyrighted books with restricted access because it is tedious task without reward. At least in non-computer spheres of knowledge.

Reminds me the imageboard preppers who hoard informationals and survival books to "prepare" for some kind of catastrophe or big collapse. And they don't realize all those stuff would be useless at the moment when the problem arises. They would be better off with one book - what they read and test in practice before the shit hits the fan. Then if they have the time, they could process another one.
I have a large collection of e-books, but I only downloaded once in bulk, which contained liek 2-300 books, and they are all fiction, "best sellers" or some such shit were they are. It's useless if I don't know what I'm getting.

Its endchan. Its a forum where various boards are run by the users and dedicate it to whatever topic they want. You need to picture other boards as a somewhat separate entities.
On /kc/ we have discussions on a rather broad spectrum of topics. If you look around you'll probably get it how it is here.
