AmblesideOnline Links to etexts and other yahoo email lists

Most AO-related email support groups are spin-off groups started and maintained by individual AO moms and are independent of the AO Advisory.
The original AmblesideOnline email list (now replaced by our Forum) and CMSeries are the only "official" lists, and are the only lists that are moderated/overseen by Advisory members. All other lists are independent and may not reflect AO, HEO, or the Advisory.

Formatted etexts for each year

Links to these lists are provided for members' convenience. AO Advisory members do not moderate, manage or oversee any lists except the original AmblesideOnline email list (now replaced by our Forum), and member discretion is advised.


These formatted etext lists are non-discussion lists for the sole purpose of making formatted etexts of public domain materials available to AO users. PDF lists have etexts available as PDF files and Word lists offer the etexts as Word documents. Texts on the Word lists are formatted in double columns with a wider margin on the inside edge of each page so they can be printed double sided and then bound without it effecting the print. Formatted etext lists are not owned or managed by Advisory members; they are the volunteer efforts of AO list members.

Etexts

Note: to download files using Windows Explorer (IE), right-click on the file name and choose the "save target as..." option. Make a note of where the file is saved so you can find it on your hard drive. Large files may take a few minutes (many minutes with a 56K modem) where it appears that nothing is happening. It may take some patience to wait until the file completely downloads.

Some etexts are in plain text format to make them accessible to the largest number of members and to save space. To download, right click and choose the "save target as..." option. Make a note of where the file is saved on your hard drive. Either copy and paste into your word processor or open the file from your word processor. You can change the font size and style from there as desired to print or read from your computer screen..

The plain text documents may not have line breaks - this makes them adaptable to any word processing program or font size. This means that, if you open the file in an application without "word wrap," the words will appear as a long line that goes off your computer screen. This is normal! To correct this, either copy/paste the text to your word processor, or turn on the "word wrap" option. In Microsoft Notepad, this is under the Edit button.
