Update - additional material 2013 June -
Download the iso file of the 1008 core material - 1008 is the 7th core disk after 1001,1002,1003,1004,1005,1006 - and has mainly material from
google books.... Browse 1008 content at 1008. This file is downloaded as 1008.zip but should be renamed as 1008.iso and then burned to dvd or
extracted using izarc free zip utility..... We hope soon to also host 1008 as 349 small downloadable zip files of about 10 MB each using FRee Download Manager, which can then be
reconstituted into 1008.iso using the fre zip utility 7-zip... Note that 1008 is not yet available as a torrent download - that will also occur sometime soon - Alex Weir, June 1013...

CD3WD Core 6 DVDs
6 dvds - is high quality free public domain and creative commons third world development content, much of it created by aid donors and NGOs over the years. 99% of the content is now in pdf files, and the file naming system makes it relatively easy to find what you want and to extract ebooks for any subject.
The stuff covers agriculture, forestry, fisheries, food processing, construction, health, water and sanitation, appropriate technology, alternative energy, ecology, education and a host of other subjects. This material is not only useful for third world citizens but also for westerners trying some self sufficiency or keeping a local non-internet backup in case civilization collapses - we are strong with survivalists. There are about 6000 ebooks in the 6 dvds, about 26 GB in total.
