As [u=disneyfacts] compiled in Discogs: http://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/397715
I think we need a thread where adding every interesting book-related site. Then in the future bibliogs management could use it fo fill a new "Useful resources outside of Bibliogs" similar to http://wiki.discogs.com/index.php/Useful_resources_outside_of_Discogs

And please, help, I don't know how to edit entries of threads.
Thank you all

As far as I am aware, none of us can edit our postings on the forum... so what you say goes! (be careful!)

This is a cool idea. Maybe worth creating a Wiki page for it.

I've created a wiki for this awesome idea
http://www.biblio.gs/wiki/Web-Resources

Users are welcome to add to the wiki, or if they are not comfortable editing, just post suggestions here and then I or someone else can add them.

wiki updated

Thanks for getting this going, guys!

I found this Magazines and Newspapers database, world wide
http://www.ipl.org/div/news/

Missing a "Library" in the list.. Italian!!
Our libraries are all connected in to a national catalog, so, not a national physical library, but a policentric unmaterial library, reachable through the catalog:

I wish an "ogssite" like http://www.vinylhub.com/ but using Libraries around the world.
Discogs + oggers aorund the world could do it

"I wish an "ogssite" like http://www.vinylhub.com/ but using Libraries around the world.

Now that is an awesome idea.

And by the way, as appears this is serious, a huge work with tons of books, I miss hints and comments by Publishers and librarians about matters we deal in forum (Well, maybe some of yours it is) I mean Advise about classify millions of books.
