Another bit of the heavenly library
Many of us have some kind of utopian dream of a heavenly library where everything ever published is available for all; a kind of great digital archive of everything, including books. Another step in this journey of a thousand miles came with news that the Life photo library is now available, courtesy of the Big G. From the site:
Search millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, stretching from the 1750s to today. Most were never published and are now available for the first time through the joint work of LIFE and Google.
