The Alexandria iBase Project
The Alexandria iBase Project champions the collection and preservation of astrological and related research, writings and knowledge for the benefit and enlightenment of current & future generations!
AIP saves astrological and related knowledge from disappearing over time… Join us in our quest to collect & preserve valuable astrological and related materials for the benefit of current and future generations!
The driving force behind this endeavor is to serve as course conservator of all the books, papers, audio/video recordings that are often given away piece meal to libraries, friends, or just discarded. The loss of the original Library of Alexandria during, and because of the Roman Empire's invasion of Egypt ....well it bothered us and hence the name and the goal.
We are a group of people dedicated to the idea that preserving astrological and related materials is important. And too often these resources are lost to the future.
We are creating an international effort to provide a central catalog similar to Worldcat that provides access to digital materials and connects users to other library resources worldwide.
We incorporated as a non-profit so that others can contribute time, expertise, materials and/or money to assist with this project.
We created an online library database to catalog and catagorize materials we have collected AND provide links to other libraries and resources of astrological and related materials.
We are seeking donations to scan and digitize books, articles, periodicals and personal papers that we or other organizations already possess. Especially materials that otherwise might not be otherwise preserved or made available.
We are looking for individual and organization libraries that are willing to join their library catalog with ours.
