Sophia [n.Gr.] Wisdom, Goddess of Wisdom;
Knows [v.i.] To have knowledge; to have a clear and certain perception; to possess wisdom, instruction, or information
Sophiaknows is dedicated to interchange of public domain data resources, as well as promotion and support of non-proprietary standards.
Sophiaknows was formed in 1998 to distribute our first application: SK1.0 NetCalendar, a web based contact and group scheduling application.
Since that time we have extended our initial remote database and html reporting tools to support a variety of content and knowledge management applications.
PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARIES
Our public domain libraries include over 50,000 full-text documents and hundreds of thousands of directory and database entries.
Our core archive is a Federal Law Library including Supreme Court and Circuit Courts of Appeal decisions (1997-present), as well as the full text of the United States Code.
The library primary contents are hosted at TechlawReporter.Com and are available in full-text html and plaintext versions. Material can be retrieved in annual volumes, using standard legal citators, and by keyword search.
Annotated bibliographic directories are available for each library in HTML, TXT, and RSS formats. RSS bibliographic services are available for additional, remote, federal resources not included in our primary libraries, including recent legislation, pending regulations and agency press releases.
