Hi Rick,

Re the Reference Library.

I don't know about the copyright but there is lot of good Lucas material available in various web locations. For example this one:
http://www.justbrits.com/Articles/lucas_course.html

I don't know whether you would choose to host your own copies or just link to other sites.

Peter
