Project Gutenberg

Making use of the National Dictionary of Biography for the post on the Tasmanian economists has reminded me of the wealth of information in the Dictionary and in other souces that can be tapped via the portal of Project Gutenberg Australia. Among many other things there are several of Australia's "greatest books" on line, from a list compiled by Geoffrey Dutton in 1985.

Even more amazing in some ways is Google Books which provides access to the whole text of a massive number of old books and to significant chunks of recently published books.
