Abstract:

"The goal of the Online Books Page is to facilitate "access to books that are freely readable over the Internet ... This site includes a searchable database of over 20,000 book titles [now over 1,000,000--12/27/2010] available from many different sources, including such well known sites as the University of Virginia's Electronic Text Center and Project Gutenberg (http://promo.net/pg/), also a Mars Best 2003 winner. In addition to keyword searching, there are options to browse by author, title or subject, this latter category arranged by Library of Congress call number. New to the site are links to several runs of serial archives. Primarily an index to English language materials, there is a page of links provided to several foreign language sites. The look is very spare, but with few graphics and easy-to-read pages, navigation is very fast and easy."--"Best Free Reference Web Sites 2003, RUSA Quarterly, Fall 2003. Reviewed Apr. 12, 2003."
