FOSsil Bank: A Catalogue of Shareable Resources and Libre Works


This wiki has been replaced by the Free and Open Works wiki



If the advertising annoys you, sign in to Wikidot and it goes away (or install Adblock Plus on Firefox).

This wiki collects and catalogues the world's shareable resources: works that can be copied and shared without breaking the law. Some of these works can be adapted and altered and some can be sold. Works that can be duplicated and adapted for profit or for free are called libre works and they are given special priority.
