The project was launched on November 24 2003 under the temporary URL sources.wikipedia.org. The URL wikisource.org, which as of January 2004, redirects to this temporary URL, is intended to become the project's real address.
Prior to this, source texts were placed at ps.wikipedia.org, which was mistakenly used to mean Project Sourceberg, but is actually the Pashto language Wikipedia. All texts which had been temporarily placed there were moved to the official site on the day of the launch.
Wikisorce's logo is an iceberg, a play on the term sourceberg which the project was previously called.
