Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen
have a number of complete childrens' books together with a large thematic image database covering everything from natural science to ABC books and more. Never let it be said that old childrens' books aren't packed full of weirdness goodness.

This comes circuitously via Netbib who cover german digital issues. I get their newsletter and despite the fact that I can't read it at all (virtually), they always have excellent repository links.

Speaking of the non-english world, Netlex have a new address --- this is a stellar and wide-ranging art/culture site, mostly in french.

I've been visiting your blog almost daily for the past 4 or 5 months, so I thought it appropriate to let you know I really enjoy it.
