Kraina D'Igrasa 1:59 - Rabbi Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky Zatzal writes that one who does not return the Seforim to its place is doing a Midah Achzorios and is a Rasha. Alternatively you can print one of the pictures in this link and show what the Shul can look like if Sefarim are not returned to their place, or even better just do this a few times until the ...

I was once in a Beis Medrash which used the following tactic. They had signs up which said that the sefarim were only available to use on condition that you return them to the shelf. So if you don't return them, you have borrowed them without permission and are a thief. So you could add לא תגזול to your next sign if you would like to go this route.

The Steipler Gaon once finished learning in a Yeshiva not far his home. After walking approximately 100 meters, despite the fact that walking was very difficult for him he realized that he didn’t return his sefer to its place. He then turned around, went back to the place he was sitting, returned the sefer, and then went home.

Hebrewbooks.org has a lot of seforim, though mostly in PDF format. (You can get their Shas and Rambam as text files.) Torat Emet Sefaria has a lot of text sefarim, coupled with crowdsourced English translations. Wikitext (idea taken from here, h/t YEZ) Mechon Mamre, Hebrew and English Tanach, as well as many, many other sefarim. (idea taken from here, h/t ...

The text is also available via Torat Emet - you can find an HTML version of the text here. In response to activities and comments that took place off this website, I'd like to add that if you look at the top of the page linked above, you'll notice that Torat Emet has claimed a copyright on the text with "כל הזכויות שמורות" (all rights reserved).

I just found the following here: (I can't vouch for it's accuracy since I did not read the intro myself.) IT is the object of this work “to afford a guide for the perplexed,” i.e. “to thinkers whose studies have brought them into collision with religion” p. 9), “who have studied philosophy and have acquired sound knowledge, and who, while firm in ...

I heard Rav Moshe Wolfson in a recording about the mitzvah of Emunah say that Mesillas Yesharim is for the yesharim and Moreh Nevochim is for the Nevochim. However, a friend of mine pointed out to me that the Rambam has something very interesting in Moreh Nevochim. In the third section, he presents his understanding of Maaseh Merkava. He prefaces it by ...

Shakai is one of the names that requires placement in shemos. To quote an article by the KOF-K (second page there): Those names are: שם הויה, אדנות, א-ל, א-לוה, אל-והים, ש-די, צבאות. a9 9 Refer to Mesechtas Shavuos 35a-35b, Tur Y.D. 276, Shulchan Aruch 276:9, Bais Yosef. Some say אהיה אשר אהיה (Shulchan Aruch ibid). The Gemara that they quoted ...

I have learnt by Rav Meir Stern-one of the greatest Roshei Yeshiva in America. He was attached to all the Rambams on the sugya. He did discuss many Rans as well. That's regarding the Rishonim. Achron that he said over often was the Birchas Shmuel.

I usually find that "guilty encouragement" is a good tactic among Jews, esp. in shuls. An example in this case, you could either put up a sign or better have verbal announcements by you, the rabbi or whoever has authority emphasizing these ideas: The sefarim are meant to help everyone who wants to increase their Torah knowledge. Studying Torah is ...

I've been in a Yeshiva with Satmar guys. By Halacha Seder they learnt Mishnah Berira. Reb Leibel Willger isn't Satmar but he uses Mishnah Berira all the time!

Iyunei Deah by Rabbi Ullman. It contains a collection of investigations ('iyunim') into Hilchos Yoreh Deah based on the bechinos of Rabbi Zalman Nechemia Goldberg in Isur v'Heter (melicha, basar b'chalav, ta'arovos) and Nida.

Reb Meir Stern teaches Rambam Hilchos Teshuva like I have written elsewhere. I would recommend you listen to a shiur on the Rambam from YUTorah etc.
