Google has developed a site called Knol that has hundreds of thousands of pages written by authors in any kind of category imaginable. There has been discussion by knol authors on developing a KnolLibrary to find categories easier. We are looking for and trying to develop an identification and organization plan that will lay the foundation for what will become the world's largest and best Internet content library. Several different knol authors are working to develop an idea on how to reach the goal to convince Internet visitors and Google that Knol is the largest and best organized Internet multi-purpose library, just as Wikipedia is the largest and best Internet encyclopedia.

Knol authors are shaping collections that are beginning to fill a giant new Knol Library "building" Google has constructed. Knol Library collections have the potential to become an immense academic research and public library serving many different unique and diverse audiences. To achieve that goal Knol authors need to help Google configure the Knol Library to become a linked series of specialized academic discipline libraries along with a large public library for general audiences. By doing so Knol authors and Google can better attract new Knol authors, including academic research community members, and also develop policies to better evaluate and "shelve" inappropriate and spam knols. From a knol by Eric Clausen

The reason this Library is called Knol Library Foundation does not mean it will be set up as an non-profit organization. This may turn into a non-profit foundation at some point in time, or may just carry the name of a Foundationwithout being a profit or non-profit organization.See Google's For-Profit Foundation to see how a for profit foundation is run.
