Hello to CPC Wiki
I am Jeremy Barr-Hyde from Australia and am writing to offer some new PDF scans of CPC manauls.
My hobby background is archiving/preserving/scanning vintage computing materials, with a focus on the Apple II.  I have scanned over 60,000 pages and share them publicly on my direct-download Google Drive repository.


An ex-librarian donated her printed materials for scanning and almost all of it is CPC 464 software manuals.  Unfortunately they are photocopied from the originals though. 


As I am out of the loop with CPC stuff I figured 'just scan it' and maybe someone else will know what to do.  I assume most of it is online but you may find something new.


Anyone interested can view my repo at:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BweO6Y13Cmc4VlFKYkx2MWxWU1k
Navigate through the folders:  Scanned Book and Magazine Collection -> Amstrad

Hi Jeremy and welcome to the CPCWiki Forum.


A good place to upload the PDFs would be the Internet Archive at https://archive.org/index.php. That's about as permanent a home as you might find. Also, the PDFs will be OCR'd into text on uploading which makes it possible to search inside them individually and also makes it more likely that they can be found by web searches.
