Subject Areas (Disciplines): Every book/title in the OLL collection is assigned to one or more of the 12 main Subject Areas or Disciplines.
Topics: Many titles are assigned to more specialized Topics such as, Free Trade, Freedom of Speech, or Natural Rights. These lists change as more material is added to the OLL. Suggestions for new Topics are welcomed.
Special Collections: Some of the collections in the OLL are particularly noteworthy for their scholarly importance, such as the Liberty Fund edition of the works of Ludwig von Mises (20 titles) and the Toronto University Press edition of The Collected Works of John Stuart Mill (32 volumes).
Other Collections: Wherever possible, we put online multi-volume collections (also called “sets”) of the works of key individuals, such as Thomas Jefferson or James Madison, William Shakespeare, or Thomas Macaulay. From time to time we assign books to a “Collection” based upon some related theme, such as books banned by established churches or states because of their defence of individual liberty. Some others include:
Quotations about Liberty and Power: – Each week a new quote is added to the front page of the OLL. It highlights a key idea about liberty or power by one of our authors. The collection now totals over 400 quotes which are categorized by topics such as free trade, money, abolition, law, literature, politics, war & peace, despots, etc. It is a useful way to sample some of the material in the OLL collection.
The Portable Library of Liberty Data DVD: The PLL disk can be ordered free of charge upon request. It contains over 1,000 full text titles from the OLL collection. They are in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats, are fully self-contained & searchable, and are organized by title, subject area, and topic. The disk also includes our collection of quotations about liberty and power.
