Hi,

During Wikimania hackathon, User:Pmlineditor created two python scripts for
British Library Endangered Archives Program books upon request from Bengali
WIkisource community

One of the script is to mass download the books, the other script is to
selectively download and directly upload the books to Commons.

The scripts are in github - https://github.com/prachatos/eap2pdf

Thanks,
Bodhisattwa

I don't know if this is a relevant discussion or not, but as far as I
understand most of the books digitized under the EAP program have a
restrictive copyright notice, such as this one:
https://eap.bl.uk/archive-file/EAP704-1-2#?c=0&m=0&s=0&cv=
23&xywh=-409%2C-162%2C5067%2C3173

Most of them are clearly PD books, but maybe it wouldn't hurt to try to
contact Jody Butterworth first (she's in charge of the EAP program) and
reach her about the permissions. Is one of those tricky situations where
you might have your stuff taken down (or worst, have a legal case around
it). The email is: ***@bl.uk. When I reached them out they
were quite responsive.

best,
scann
