WELCOME TO OBOS!!!!!!!!
You can browse the entire library of clips without having an account, but you will need to sign in once you'd like to save a clip, submit your own content, or create a Reading List.
I want to add a page from an old family Reading List. How can I do this?
The are two options - 1) Use your scanner at home to scan a copy of this page. Save it as a JPG and upload it as a clip or 2) Enter just the text of this page as an editable clip. You can enter text by typing directly into the text field on the submit page, or copying and pasting text from a word processing document into the field.
I'm uploading an image, what size should it be?
Its best to make your image square format if possible, and at least 200 ppi (pixels per inch) - or 1600 x 1600 pixels. This means your image will be large enough to print clearly on a full page or can be scaled down to a smaller size if desired. You may upload smaller images as needed.
My community wants to collaborate on a Reading List. How can we do this?
You can add collaborators to any Reading List. First, open the reading list editor, then select "invite collaborators" at the top right of the page. You may then enter the e-mail addresses of anyone that you'd like to invite, as well as a personal message. Each individual will then be directed to create a personal account, with access to the shared Reading List where they may independently add clips.
How do you know that the texts on this site are not prohibited under copyright?
We do our best to review the content submitted daily, but we also ask our users to contribute based on an honor system. If you see a clip that you believe violates copyright restrictions, please inform us and we'll review it immediately. We require all of our users to follow our Sharing Policy.
Do I have to donate to download?
No, but it helps us maintain the site. We're a small not-for-profit and we run almost entirely on your donations. If there's a feature that you'd like to add, chances are that we want to add it too, we just need to fundraise for the technology. With that said, we want Jewish content to be accessible for everyone. If you feel that you can't afford to give this year, don't worry about it. We're still happy to help you plan your Passover.
