I ran across this project while doing some genealogical research. The interface is ground-breaking in my opinion and makes for easy use (assuming you have a compatible browser).

Historical Maps Online
Posted on 12 August 2004 15:19 | Permalink

"The intent of the Historical Maps Online project is to publish electronically the images of maps charting the last 400 years of historical development in Illinois and the Northwest Territory. Designed to appeal both to map aficionados and to educational institutions, the project aims to provide a broad spectrum of content, from expert scholarship of mapmakers and mapmaking to general knowledge about cartography and history. This project is a collaborative effort between the University of Illinois Library and the University of Illinois Press. Also included is a selection of maps from the Newberry Library."

This site is offering the full text of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in daily chunks, delivred via RSS. This gave me the idea of releasing digital library content via RSS, as projects evolve. As I scan and transcribe books/documents, etc, I could be posting the digitized content in serialized format.
