Initial Data Collection and Normalization

Wherever possible, the books are converted to markdown. This formatting is kept intact with downstream tasks in mind (e.g. conversational QA). The source of the text is prepended to each document to add context, and it is hoped that this also has the potential to improve source attribution and guidance capabilities of models.

Licensing Information

All books in this collection were previously released with an unambiguous cc-by-4.0 license by the original authors.
