      Awens to All:

      I just had a look in the Library of the Members Home Page and noticed that there is nothing there are is written by Celtic Paganistic Scholars such as Emma Restall-Orr, Philip Carr-Gomme or the BDO’s Philip Shallcrass.

      Everything there is Old and Out of Copywrite.

      Can’t there be a few copies of works by Druidistic Works that is more recent and by Modern Scholars such as the ones I mentioned?

      And how can one submit something to the Library? I would Love to submit my Treasury of Druidistic Triads to your Library.

        Here is something I found that is Interesting from the Internet Archive:
        https://archive.org/details/gri_33125008491215/page/n57/mode/2up

        It is an Old Picture Book of The Stonehenge that is over 100 years old so it is Out of Copyright.

          Here is the Mythology & Rites of the British Druids:
          https://archive.org/details/gri_33125008491215/page/n57/mode/2up

          Published in 1807, it is something that could be included in the BDO Library.

            To find other good Druidistic Publications on Internet Archive, just do a Search for ‘Druids’.

              That’s why its available here and free. 😀

              To be honest, I tend to avoid anything written on the druids between the 18th and early 20th centuries unless it’s directly dealing with folklore and folk stories or genuine Celtic literature. Most of what was written about druids in that period was wild speculation, unreliable and filled with some pretty strange and, by now, debunked notions and ideas. I don’t think they’re very helpful at all and, worse still, I feel they can be counterproductive.

                Just had a look at the Recommended Reading List.

                Shouldn’t those Books be made available in the BDO Library?

                  I think there’d be copyright and, obviously, cost issues.

                    At the moment I am agreeing with Dowrgi here regarding copyright and cost issues. 3 x 3 you have made some excellent comments so far. Would it be possible for members’s work to be added to the growing library as more recent additions? I am opposed to copying anything in without the original owner’s permission

                      Hi David,

                      That’s an interesting idea, perhaps members could voluntarily submit pieces of their work to an extension of the library.
