I'm looking for a rather large amount of pdf files for testing my text processing program. Tried looking for an open site to get like some thousand pdfs, but wasn't able to find anything. I don't really know if that is the right place to ask (probably not) but maybe one has a good tip for me.

Thanks in advance.

A GitHub repo with ~1,000 pdfs is here.

Another GitHub repo has a corpus of pdf examples, including edge-cases, is here.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, the first one fits perfectly. Edge-cases is not really what I'm targeting yet, but i will definetly keep that in mind $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 26, 2017 at 11:15
